Open Call: Crime, Sexuality and Gender (Event: Zagreb), Deadline: 01.08.08

Freitag, Juni 27th, 2008

Queer Zagreb is an international festival which has been taking place in Croatia since 2003 and has been presenting international and local artists, academics and activists to an audience of cca 3000 – 5000 per year. Queer Zagreb festival constructs its programme each year around a certain theme which is presented throughout its programme. So far we have touched such issues as «postsocialist queer identity», «heteronormativity of childhoods», «transgression of private into public» and «Balkans queer». For our 2008 edition the main topic of interest is «Crime, sexuality and gender» to be presented in different forms during the event – visual arts, performance, film and an academic conference.

Crime, sexuality and gender are issues that we would like to explore within the frames of our festival. We are interested in wider definitions of crime (in relation to sexuality and gender) which would go beyond the regular time / geography frame as well as beyond concentration solely on the victims – whose destinies leave them displaced, murdered, raped, tortured, killed.

We would like to initiate an approach which include (mehr …)

CfP Reproduction, Sex, and Power (Publication: Journal of Women’s History), Deadline: 01.09.08

Mittwoch, Juni 25th, 2008

Special Issue of the Journal of Women’s History, Editor: Leslie J. Reagan

Reproduction, sexuality, and bodies have been key sites for state and religious intervention and control, for defining gender, class, race, and sexual identity and for establishing hierarchies and inequalities. They have also been of central significance to individuals and to organized feminist movements. Although today some may think of “sex” and “reproduction” as unrelated topics and fields of research, historically they have been closely intertwined. This issue seeks to spotlight the centrality of reproduction, sex, and power to women’s history and to demonstrate the ways in which power has been made, played, and fought over and through reproduction and sex. Indeed, histories of nations and empire, foreign policy and law, religion and popular culture are not free of these seemingly private experiences. Precisely (mehr …)

CfP: The Problem of Sources in Women’s Memory (Event: Istanbul), Deadline: 01.07.2008

Montag, Juni 23rd, 2008

Based on requests from colleagues, the coverage for 20th Anniversary Symposium of the Women’s Library and Information Centre Foundation in Istanbul (Website), has now been extended as: „The Problem of Sources in Women’s Memory“.

Rather than limiting itself to the Turkish case from the Ottoman Era to the Present. There will now be two parallel sessions. One on Turkish issues and one Women’s Archives, in general. To couple this change, the deadline for submitting summaries is now postponed to 1 July 2008

From 17-19 April 2009, as part of our 20th anniversary celebrations, the Women’s Library and Information Centre [WLIC] will be holding an international symposium on „The Problem of Sources in Women’s Memory“

The symposium will offer, we believe, the broadest examination to date on „sources in women’s studies and women’s history.“ Our aim is to create a setting (mehr …)
