CfP: The shared responsibility of care: Historical debates on health and social care provision during the 19th and 20th centuries (Event, 06/2019, Leuven); DL: 15.01.2019

Mittwoch, November 21st, 2018


Ort: Leuven
Zeit: 03.-04.06.2019
Einreichfrist: 15.01.2019

Current political and societal discussions on the future organisation of social and healthcare services are driven by many different agendas. The traditional, institutionalised national welfare state mechanisms experience rising demands but are at the same time confronted with budgetary and operational limits. Officials and policy makers try to develop new frameworks, re-adjusting the balance of responsibilities assigned to professional welfare state institutions, private actors and subsidiary social provisions, the formal and informal voluntary assistance offered by local and cultural communities (community care) and the intergenerational solidarity within families and between individuals.

Social provisions should focus on needs rather than on entitlements, so it is argued. New forms of governance and more ‘humane’ social provisions are demanded, rooted in less calculated and conditional but more disinterested forms of solidarity. Other arguments concern the empowerment of patients and other care-receivers, sometimes connected to the need for more individualised provisions and the revalorisation of self-help. Meanwhile other voices urge for a de-institutionalisation or at least a stronger societal embedding of care, facilitating for instance the social (re)integration of patients and other vulnerable groups. These wide-ranging issues and discussions are sometimes summarized under the umbrella concept of ‘socialisation of care’, although this notion remains vague and has been defined in very different ways.

CfP: Staging the Space Between, 1914-1945 (Event, 05/2019, Brookings/SD); DL: 01.12.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Mittwoch, November 21st, 2018

21st Annual Conference of The Space Between Society: Literature and Culture, 1914-1945

Time: May 30-June 1, 2019
Venue: South Dakota State University, Brookings, SD
Proposals by: December 1, 2018

What is the role of staging in The Space Between? What does it look like, where does it occur, and how does it function?

Staging is an essential part of how we conceptualize history, literature, culture, and art. The concept of staging naturally invokes performance and invites us to examine this period’s performing arts: its theatre, dance, and music, its art and artists, celebrities and entrepreneurs, its practices and innovations. Staging expands the realm of performance to include more diverse arts, media, and productions, such as fashion, literature, performance art, and interior design. Technical innovations extended modes of performance to radio, cinema, television, staging the voice and the body in new and provocative ways to different and diverse audiences.

However, staging extends beyond the arts into other realms of society. We can observe how staging operates within consumer culture, from the department store to the popular periodical, and we can track the growth of industries that relied on mass production. The term embraces other registers of performance and enables us to consider the performativity of language and gender, warfare and nationhood, politics and protest. Staging shapes the way we remember the present and the past, both as individuals and as a society. (mehr …)

CfP: Traversing the Gap: Relevance as a Transformative Force at Sites of Public Memory (Event: 06/2019, NY); DL: 31.12.2018

Dienstag, November 20th, 2018

National September 11 Memorial & Museum; 2nd Andrew W. Mellon Conference 2019

Time: June 19-21, 2019
Venue: National September 11 Memorial & Museum, New York
Proposals by: 31.12.2018

As time passes between the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the present, efforts to engage the public in the process of constructing and making sense of the events—as well as their relationship to them—becomes increasingly difficult. Time distances visitors and those who work on memory-related initiatives from communal traumas and the historic sites that commemorate them, interfering with processes of understanding and empathy. Due to this phenomenon, the conference explores the concept of „relevance,“ as a state of staying connected to a communal trauma to educate, foster growth, and encourage empathy. In such a way, memorials, museums, and historic sites become not only places of honoring victims but also places that support transformation at the individual and cultural levels.

Located in the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, the conference will be an interdisciplinary exploration of „relevance.“ According to some scholars and museum professionals, relevance is an internal, cognitive process that activates prior knowledge or helps witnesses identify commonalities between their personal histories and the histories of those victimized or affected by historical violence. This process of activation can be a socially-mediated experience, occurring in interactions within people and communities (Nielsen, 2014). (mehr …)

CfP: Knowing the Self: Auto/Biographical Narratives and the History of Knowledge (IABA Europe Conference 2019, 06/2019, Madrid); DL: 28.01.2019

Dienstag, November 13th, 2018

International Auto/Biography Association (IABA) Europe Conference 2019 (Web)

Time: June 19–21, 2019
Venue: Complutense University, Madrid
Proposals by: 28 January 2019

IABA Europe was founded in October 2009, with the aim of encouraging European scholars to participate in the International Auto/Biography Association by organizing biennial conferences, publishing an e-journal, and facilitating contacts via various means of communication. Following five successful conferences in Amsterdam (2009), Tallinn (2011), Vienna (2013), Funchal, Madeira (2015), and London (2017), the 2019 conference will be hosted by Complutense University, Madrid.

The sixth IABA Europe conference proposes to examine the interrelation between life writing and the history of knowledge. Insofar as all life writing is concerned with human self-understanding, it is necessarily entangled with diverse fields that produce knowledge about humans, whether the narration aims at rendering a seemingly given knowledge of the self or at acquiring it, at questioning it or at staging it. Any “knowledge of the self” is inscribed in a broader history—or histories—of knowledge. Yet, to which bodies of knowledge and which theoretical languages do auto/biographical narratives refer in order to gain or communicate a specific “knowledge” of the self? Which historically and culturally diverse fields of knowledge have … read more (Web).

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

Dienstag, November 13th, 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.

CfP: Täter/innen und Opfer im Nationalsozialismus und die Bedeutung von Geschlecht (Event: 02/2019, Krefeld); DL: 25.11.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Montag, November 12th, 2018

Sandra Franz, Gedenkstätte Villa Merländer und Mareen Heying, Heinrich-Heine-Univ. Düsseldorf und Ruhr-Univ. Bochum

Zeit: 22.-23.02.2019
Ort: Krefeld, NRW
Einreichfrist: 25.11.2018

Richard Merländer, geboren 1874 in Mühlheim an der Ruhr, wurde als Jude und Homosexueller durch die Nationalsozialist/innen aus der Gesellschaft ausgeschlossen, 1942 wurde er in Treblinka ermordet. Das einstige Wohnhaus des Seidenfabrikanten Merländer ist seit 1991 Sitz der NS-Dokumentationsstelle Krefeld, seit März 2018 wird diese von der Historikerin Sandra Franz geleitet.

Traditionell stehen in der deutschen Erinnerungs- und Forschungsarbeit die Opfer des NS im Zentrum. Täter/innenforschung fokussiert sich gegebenenfalls auf Einzelpersonen und verfolgt damit eine Linie, die seit mehreren Jahrzehnten überholt sein sollte. Strukturelle, genderbasierte Forschung findet verschwindend wenig statt und ist in Gedenk- und Dokumentationsstellen selten zu finden. Im Schulunterricht findet sie gar keinen Einsatz. Mit der Villa Merländer als Tagungsort sollen Täter/innen stärker in den Fokus von Gedenkstättenarbeit gerückt werden. Zudem soll zu neuen Forschungsansätzen in und außerhalb Krefelds angeregt werden. In einem speziellen Panel wird der Fokus auf den Einsatz von Täter/innenforschung im Schulunterricht gelegt werden.

Nicht nur die Villa Merländer als Ort und Richard Merländer als Person werfen viele Fragen auf, denen in verschiedenen Vorträgen nachgegangen werden soll und zu denen Abstracts willkommen sind: … weiterlesen und Quelle (Web)

CfP: Gründungsworkshop des Arbeitskreises Sexualitäten in der Geschichte (Event, 05/2019, Berlin); DL: 15.01.2019

FG-Projekt »Die Homosexuellenbewegung und die Rechtsordnung in der Bundesrepublik«, Arbeitsbereich Didaktik der Geschichte am Friedrich-Meinecke-Institut der FU Berlin und Forschungsstelle Kulturgeschichte der Sexualität an der HU zu Berlin

Freie Universität Berlin
Zeit: 17.-18.05.2019
Einrichfrist: 15.01.2019

Obwohl seit den 1990er Jahren auch im deutschsprachigen Raum vermehrt sexualgeschichtliche Studien erschienen sind, ist dieses Thema innerhalb der hiesigen geistes- kultur- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Forschung und Lehre immer noch stark unterrepräsentiert. Außerhalb der sexualwissenschaftlich-medizinischen Fachdisziplin scheint Sexualität weiterhin nicht als seriöser Untersuchungsgegenstand zu gelten und wird häufig pauschal mit der Geschlechterforschung verknüpft, die gleichfalls immer noch randständig ist.

Im Vordergrund geschichts- und kulturwissenschaftlicher Studien zur Sexualität standen bislang vor allem körper- und biopolitische Aspekte also bspw. Diskurse und Praktiken zur staatlichen Steuerung der Reproduktion von Bevölkerungen. Auch die Geschichte und Gegenwart von marginalisierten Sexualitäten wurde in zahlreichen Untersuchungen aufbereitet. Seit Ende der 1990er Jahre haben sich Historiker_innen sowie Erziehungs- und Sozialwissenschaftler_innen zudem vermehrt mit sexualisierter Gewalt und der Ausformung des jeweiligen Sexualstrafrechts in verschiedenen historischen Gesellschaften sowie in der Gegenwart befasst.
