Submissions by 01.11.2018

The Cfp for the next thematically mixed issue is available as PDF (Link)

Moving the Social is an international and peer-reviewed journal rooted in the discipline of history but with an explicit interest in work produced on social affairs and social movements by other disciplines, in particular the social sciences, geography, anthropology and ethnology. It is particularly keen to promote transnational and comparative perspectives on the history of social movements set in a wider context of social history. It appears twice yearly, with one issue on a particular theme and one thematically mixed issue. Each issue includes a comprehensive review article, one of which each year is on recent publications in social movement studies.

All issues from 1977 have recently been digitised and can be found online, with the latest issues being only available to subscribers.

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]

Freitag, August 17th, 2018

Editor: Rachel Alpha Johnston Hurst

Proposals by: October 1, 2018

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)? This edited collection begins from these questions to … read more and source (Web).

CfP: History of Midwives 1800-1950: Social, Cultural and Economic Aspects of the Professionalization of Childbirth (Event: 11/2018, Kutná Hora); DL: 30.08.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Donnerstag, August 16th, 2018

Department of History, University of Pardubice

Venue: Dacicky House, Kutna Hora, Czech Republic
Date: 01.-02.11.2018
Proposals by: 30.08.2018

The phenomenon of midwifery has been studied in the past decades often as a part of the process of modernization of society. Within this paradigm, the history of obstetrics was characterized as a permanent development of scientific knowledge, professionalization of the performance of childbirth assistance and masculinization of the obstetric profession. In hosting this conference, the organizers primary objective is to stimulate a discussion about changing position of the midwifery and female midwives in the modern era not only as a profession but as a social and cultural phenomenon.

Following fields of research are suggested:

1) Economic aspects of the midwifery: Was a profession of midwifery for practicing midwives really an independent occupation in terms of the economic and social independence or should we see childbirth assistance only as a part-time job opportunity for lower classes? To what extent were midwives dependent on other sources of income or financial support of relatives and local community? To determine regional differences in midwives‘ position and the proportion of their representation to their potential clients, a comparative study will be very beneficial to specify the differences between various typological locations – large cities, small towns, villages and remote and isolated communities.

CfP: Männlichkeiten: Praktiken und Diskurse zu Körper, Gesundheit und Krankheit (1400-1850) (Event: 02/2019, Stuttgart); DL: 30.09.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Während der beiden letzten Jahrzehnte hat sich die Männergesundheitsgeschichte als Forschungsrichtung in der deutschen Geschichtswissenschaft etabliert und erfolgreich dazu beigetragen, das in der Gesellschaft vorherrschende Bild vom „Gesundheitsmuffel Mann“ zu hinterfragen und historisch zu verorten. Der Schwerpunkt der geschlechterspezifischen Gesundheitsgeschichte lag dabei vorrangig auf dem 19. und 20. Jhd.

Um die Perspektive einer männerspezifischen Gesundheitsgeschichte zu erweitern, soll bei der Tagung die Zeit von 1400 bis 1850 in den Blick genommen werden. Dies soll es zum einen ermöglichen, zeitspezifische Charakteristika herauszuarbeiten und zum anderen aber auch Kontinuitäten im Gesundheitsverhalten von Männern aufzuzeigen. Dabei soll zunächst aus einer patienten- und körpergeschichtlichen Perspektive heraus gefragt werden, wie Männer im Kontext von Gesundheit und Krankheit konkret mit ihrem Körper umgingen.

Welches gesundheitsförderliche Verhalten praktizierten sie? D. h. wie ernährten sie sich, welcher … weiterlesen und Quelle (Web).

CfP: „Weniger ist mehr“. Askese und Geschlecht zwischen Selbstbeschränkung und Entgrenzungsstrategie (Event; 02/2019, Koblenz); DL: 30.09.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Dienstag, August 14th, 2018

Universität Koblenz-Landau (Campus Koblenz); Michaela Bill-Mrziglod und Monika Frohnapfel-Leis, AKHFG West

„Achtsamkeit“ statt Selbst- und Fremdausbeutung, „Verzicht“ statt Konsum, „Weniger ist mehr“ – das sind nur einige Schlagworte aktueller Ratgeberliteratur. Diese widmet sich neuerdings gezielt dem Thema des Verzichts zur Erlangung von Glück und Lebensfreude, Selbstwertgefühl und Authentizität als Gegenmodell zum Konsum- und Leistungsdenken. Affektivität und Körperbewusstsein bilden die Grundpfeiler rezenter Konzepte. Dabei handelt es sich um die Renaissance einer Lebensausrichtung, die von Religionen und Philosophien mit dem klassischen Begriff der Askese bezeichnet wird. Bereits antike, mittelalterliche und frühneuzeitliche Formen der Askese folgen der Logik der Selbstbeschränkung durch Einübung (griech. askesis) in Formen körperlicher und geistiger Enthaltsamkeit zur Steigerung der Selbstkontrolle. Ziel ist die Befreiung von weltlichen Bequemlichkeiten und Genüssen, die als der Seele / dem Geist (und neuerdings zunehmend dem Körper) schädliche Topoi wahrgenommen werden, sowie die Stärkung der eigenen Widerstandskraft, der Resilienz.

Die Geschichte kennt zahlreiche Formen der körperlichen und geistigen Ertüchtigung, die mitunter auch das Ertragen von Schmerzen umfasst. Im Christentum verbindet sich die Askese zudem mit dem Sünden- und Bußdiskurs, der sich vorwiegend aus einer hellenistisch beeinflussten Anthropologie speist und sich im Laufe des Mittelalters zur christlichen Lebensweise schlechthin entwickelt. Doch auch andere … weiterlesen und Quelle (Web).
