Ausstellung: Verfolgt. Verlobt. Verheiratet. Scheinehen ins Exil, bis 07.10.2018, Wien

Donnerstag, August 2nd, 2018

Jüdisches Museum Wien; Kuratorinnen: Sabine Bergler und Irene Messinger (Web)

Laufzeit: bis 7. Oktober 2018
Ort: Museum Judenplatz, Folder zur Ausstellung

Im März 1938 begann für österreichische Jüdinnen und Juden ein Wettlauf gegen die Zeit. Einige Wiener Jüdinnen retteten sich durch eine Scheinehe mit einem ausländischen Staatsbürger – Frauen übernahmen damals bei einer Eheschließung automatisch die Staatsbürgerschaft des Ehemannes. Diese Ehen wurden pro forma geschlossen, aus Solidarität oder gegen Bezahlung, um in ein Land zu gelangen, in dem Jüdinnen und Juden (noch) nicht verfolgt wurden. Frauen, die bereits im Exil waren, gingen eine Scheinehe ein, um der Staatenlosigkeit zu entgehen oder sich eine Arbeitserlaubnis zu verschaffen.

Nur wenige erzählten später über ihre Scheinehe. In der Ausstellung werden exemplarisch 13 Lebensgeschichten von Frauen vorgestellt. Diese berichten von den Chancen und Risiken einer Scheinehe als Überlebensstrategie und von unterschiedlichen Schicksalen – mit unterschiedlichem Ausgang. Die Theaterleiterin Stella Kadmon konnte sich nach Palästina retten, die Violinistin Alma Rosé wurde in Auschwitz ermordet.

CfP: Globordered Intimacies: Immigration and Gendered Labor, Family and Personal Relationships (Event: Tel Aviv, 06/2019); DL: 15.09.2018

Mittwoch, August 1st, 2018

Tel Aviv University

Venue: Tel Aviv
Time: 16.06.2019
Proposals by: 15.09.2018

Our era is characterized by intense voluntary and forced border-crossing. Short and long-term immigration, for work and multitude of other reasons, has become a part of the biographies of millions, turning „Transnational Families“, „World-Families“, and „Globordered Families“ – in which family members move from one country to the other, or live in different countries – into a significant phenomenon. Yet, much is still to be empirically studied, culturally analyzed, normatively discussed, and theoretically conceptualized in relation to the intersection of immigration, families, and gender.

Moreover, as the title of this conference highlights, families are not the only gendered intimate domain affected by immigration. For example, it has been claimed that friendshipsare “taking over various soci al tasks, duties, and functions, from family and kin.” (Phal 2000, 8). These “hidden solidarities” are less visible and institutionalized than the solidarity established in familial relations, and are seriously understudied. Another site for the study of non-familial solidarities is the workplace. For example, research in this field suggests that non-traditional forms of solidarity created with others in and outside the workplace can be crucial in the lives of migrant and other workers to prevent severe lab or market exploitation, and human trafficking.

6f8d78b78a4fe11ad5d146bfe94af3d9University of Guelph, Canada: „The Rural Diary Archive“ (Web)

Auf der Website werden die Scans von hand- oder maschingeschriebene Tagebuch-Aufzeichnungen aus den ländlichen Regionen der großen Provinz Ontario im Südosten Kanadas zur Verfügung gestellt. Derzeit sind es Aufzeichnungen von 24 verschiedenen Verfasser/innen. Diese Quellen sind Teil des Bestandes des „Rural Diary Archive“ an der University of Guelph.

Die frühesten der Aufzeichnungen in diesem Bestand gehen bis Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts zurück. Die Schreiber/innen waren häufig Migrant/innen aus Europa. Der Bestand wird laufend erweitert – und die Besucher/innen der Website sind aufgerufen, einzelne Seiten zu transkripieren. Entsprechend ist die Website als „Citizen-Science“-Projekt zu verstehen.

Beschreibung auf der Website: „Our archive showcases over 150 Ontario diarists from 1800 to 1960. Discover and Meet the Diarists are good places to get acquainted with these people from the past. Learn how to unlock the riches within their daily entries and escape into the past. You can read and search through handwritten or typed nineteenth-century diaries. Help us transcribe the handwritten ones to make these valuable sources accessible to all.“

CfP: Gendering Memory (Masculinities: A Journal of Identity and Culture); DL: 19.08.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Masculinities: A Journal of Identity and Culture; Special issue Editors: Andrea Petö and Ann Phoenix (Web)

Proposals due: 19.08.2018

Memory has become a buzzword in the study of the past and memory analysis is increasingly common. Yet, new forms of political radicalization foreground memory politics in ways that are producing multi-faceted exclusions, intolerance and erasure as well as the exclusion of challenging memories from minoritised ethnic groups. At the same time, memory politics also produce new solidarities.

Some anniversaries that commemorate historical events force issues previously submerged into public view. For example, the 2017 Danish commemoration of the centenary of their sale of the Danish West Indies to the US (now the US Virgin Isles) raises questions about the meanings of loss of, or emancipation from, empire for colonisers and those colonised. The notion that repression of such memories have long-lasting and damaging cultural consequences is increasingly the subject of academic theorising. This is exemplified by Paul Gilroy’s (2005) notion that failure to engage with the lessons of the colonial period produces ‘postcolonial melancholia’(c.f. Goswami, 2013), which, as Jane Flax (2010) suggests results because burying the past does not obliterate the dead, who retur n to haunt us. Read more … (Web).

CfP: „The Family and the Household as a Workplace“: Feminist Labour History / Labour and Family Economy (Event, Amsterdam, 09/2019); DL: 10.09.2018

Montag, Juli 30th, 2018

Third European Labour History Network (ELHN) meeting: Labour and Family Economy Working Group / Feminist Labour History Working Group (Web)

Time: 19.-21.09.2019
Venue: Amsterdam
Proposals by: 10.09.2018

Feminist labour history has for a long time been engaged in making women’s work visible and to integrate women’s work in households and families in the larger narratives of the history of work and the history of labour. More recently, the economic history and the history of the family have been deeply renewed by studies integrating the gender dimension and focusing on the household economy, a quite neglected issue until present. For this reason, the EHLN working groups “Feminist Labour History” and “Labour and family economy” launch a shared call for papers for the next ELHN conference (to be held in Amsterdam between the 19 and 21 September 2019). (CfP via PDF)

The organzisers want to address more particularly the following topics:

1) the family and the household as a workplace and a group of workers, including migrant worker families

2) family economies and agency, both the family economy as reason for protests and the effects of labour unrests for family economies

3) trade unions as vehicles and obstacles for women workers and family welfare (mehr …)

Special Issue of the Italian Journal „Contemporanea“ (Web)

Proposals by: 15.08.2018

A large body of scholarship has shown how the experience of the two world wars in the twentieth century was a crucial catalyst for the creation of modern welfare states. However, war’s role in social legislation has yet to be conceptualized more fully. In mainstream comparative literature on the welfare state, war is typically considered a rare, anomalous occurrence that is conceived as a kind of exogenous shock, as an ‚abnormal event‘, a ‚black swan‘ emergency or a critical juncture. In this way, war has constituted a gray zone in the history of the welfare state.

By contrast, the question of the origins and development of social protection systems has been viewed primarily in relation to processes of modernization or as an instrument for managing social conflict.

Nonetheless, recent studies of different national contexts have shown the fruitfulness of an approach that looks at the welfare state through the interpretative paradigm of the welfare-warfare link (for example: Scheidel 2017; Obinger–Petersen 2015; Castle 2010). Moreover, (mehr …)

CfP: Early Modern Women’s Mobilities (Journal: Early Modern Women); DL: 30.01.2019

Donnerstag, Juli 19th, 2018

Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal (Web), Volume 14.1 (Fall 2019)

Proposals by: 30.01.2019

The scholarship on early modern women has moved far beyond the long-held notion that women remained in the home. Indeed, mobility was a defining feature of many women’s lives. For this forum, we are interested not only in examples of women’s mobility, but also research that interrogates the far-reaching implications of that mobility for women and considers how it informs our understanding of gender in the early modern world.

We seek essays that examine but are not limited to:

  • Migration and settlement (actual and imagined, internal and external)
  • Travel (actual and imagined, local and global, voluntary and involuntary)
  • Gendered understandings of distance and space
  • Movement and the body
  • Modes of transportation
  • Intersectionality and mobility

Please send abstracts of 500 words to the editors ( by September 30, 2018. Completed essays of 3500 words will be due on January 30, 2019.
