CfP: Stonewall at 50 and Beyond: Interrogating the Legacy and Memory of the 1969 Riots (Event: 06/2018, Paris); DL: 15.10.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Freitag, August 17th, 2018

University of Paris-Est Créteil, France / IMAGER (Web)

Venue: Paris-Dauphine University (Paris-Sciences-et-Lettres) / IRISSO
Time: June 3rd–5th, 2019
Proposals by: October 15th, 2018

In the night of June 27th to 28th, 1969, gay and transgender patrons of the Stonewall Inn, a Greenwich Village bar in New York, refused to comply with one more among countless occurrences of police harassment. For five days and nights the neighborhood was the theater of a rough confrontation between demonstrators and police. In the following weeks and months, the resulting mobilization reinforced the already burgeoning movement for gay liberation. The first commemoration that took place the very next year, Christopher Street Liberation Day, eventually gave birth to the LGBTQ pride marches that we know today.

The 50th anniversary of Stonewall in 2019 is an opportunity to reexamine its legacy and lasting impact on the creation of an LGBTQ movement in the United States and worldwide. This conference aims to interrogate the processes of memorialization and patrimonialization, as well as the political legacy and the cultural and activist representations of Stonewall.

In the United States over this half-century, the riots have acquired a great deal of symbolic strength, growing institutional recognition, and have become incorporated into the national narrative. In 1992, … read more and source (Web)

CfP: Representing Abortion (Edited volume); DL: 01.10.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Rosalind Pollack Petchesky argued in 1987 that “feminists and other prochoice advocates have all too readily ceded the visual terrain,” abandoning the field of fetal imagery to antiabortion activists (264). She called for new fetal images that “recontextualized the fetus” (Petchesky 1987, 287). Such images would locate the fetus in a body (and a social context) outside of what Carol A. Stabile would later describe as “an inhospitable waste land, at war with the ‘innocent person’ within” that is a dominant theme in antiabortion discourse (1992, 179). Recently, Shannon Stettner wrote that although there are more ordinary stories about abortion circulating as a political response to threats to abortion access, they are typically anonymous and online, and so it remains a reality that “we are still a long way from a world in which women will not feel obliged to conceal the fact that they had an abortion” (2016, 7). Even in circumstances that support access to abortion, abortion can remain a secret: invisible and unheard.

How do we represent abortion? What work does representing abortion do? Can representing abortion challenge and change conventional reproductive rights understandings of abortion that circulate publicly? Will reclaiming representations of abortion help publicly express the “things we cannot say” about abortion from a pro-choice perspective, like grief and multiple abortions (Ludlow 2008, p. 29)? Alternatively, does taking back control of representing abortion from antiabortion activists provide a space to “celebrate” abortion as a central component of reproductive justice (Thomsen 2013, 149)?

CfP: Generation und Sexualität (Jahrbuch Frauen- und Geschlechterforschung in der Erziehungswissenschaft – FGFE); DL: 30.09.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Dienstag, August 14th, 2018

Jahrbuch Frauen- und Geschlechterforschung in der Erziehungswissenschaft (FGFE), Bd. 16/2020 (Web); Herausgeberinnen: Elke Kleinau und Jeannette Windheuser

Einreichfrist: 30.09.2018

Aktuell wird der Zusammenhang von Generation und Sexualität häufig auf Gewalt oder Fortpflanzung reduziert. Zu Ersterem tragen die notwendige Aufarbeitung sexueller bzw. sexualisierter Gewalt gegen Kinder in pädagogischen Institutionen und die „me too“-Debatte ebenso bei wie die Skandalisierung von sexualisierten Darstellungen in der Netz-Kultur (DGfE 2017; #MeToo). Zudem kann ein gewandelter Umgang mit kindlicher Sexualität beobachtet werden, in dem das Nein-Sagen vor eine bejahende Sexualität getreten ist (Sager 2008, Baader u.a. 2017).

Die Reduktion auf Fortpflanzung hingegen äußert sich in Demographie-Strategien zur Erzeugung von Humankapital wie auch in einer ‚Neuauflage‘ völkisch-rassistischer Forderungen der neuen Rechten. Dabei zeigen die Konflikte um Sexuelle Bildung in Schule und Kita, um Schwangerschaftsabbruch, Sexualstrafrecht und sexuelle Übergriffe, wie emanzipative Bestrebungen und Forderungen nach Schutz verschoben werden (Kemper 2014; Hark/Villa 2017). Der ‚Schutz‘ der nachwachsenden Generation und der ‚eigenen‘ Frauen wird instrumentalisiert, um ‚Fremde‘, nicht-heterosexuelle Perspektiven und reproduktiv-selbstbestimmte Frauen abzuwerten und auszuschließen. Paradoxerweise wird darin gerade … weiterlesen und Quelle (Web).
