S-nodi. Public and Private in Contemporary History, Venedig – Scriptaweb
Deadline: 31.01.2009

This peer reviewed journal is a space which promotes and advertises research in progress concerned with the relationship between «public» and «private», and provides a space for explorations on the nature of these two categories and on the historical sources that document them. We chose the title “S-nodi. Public and private in contemporary history” with the aim of focusing on the dichotomies, the transitions, the junctions and crossroads between public and private. We believe that the boundaries between these two spheres are ephemeral and dynamic, and that they produce, in specific historical, geographical and political contexts, different geometries.

Seminar description: Secularization and Selfhood. A Late-Spring Seminar directed by Phyllis Mack

It is a historical commonplace that a process of secularization accompanies the transition from pre-modern to modern societies: a growing indifference to religion among elite and educated classes, a separation of piety and ritual from the worlds of politics and the marketplace, and a gendering of religious practice. This seminar analyzes (mehr …)

Filmvorführung: Abortion Democracy: Poland/South Africa, 29.12.2009, Wien

Mittwoch, Dezember 17th, 2008

Abortion Democracy: Poland/South Africa (Germany 2007/8). Language: English/Polish with English subtitles (50 min.) Written and Directed by Sarah Diehl

Zeit. 29. Dezember 2008, 19 Uhr
Ort: VBKÖ – Vereinigung bildender Künstlerinnen Österreichs, Maysedergasse 2

This documentary feature explores and contrasts changes in Poland and South Africa regarding abortion laws and their impact on the lives of women.

In the 1990’s, Poland banned abortion due to the increasing influence of the Catholic Church after the fall of communism; around the same time South Africa legalized it, reforming the health system after the fall of apartheid.

The film reveals how the legal status of women is a direct result of the silencing or empowering of women’s voices. In the Polish society and media, women’s perspectives were made invisible; in South Africa, on the other hand, they were invited to give public hearings in the parliament about problems in the realm of reproduction.

CfP: Zwischen guter Hoffnung, Risiko und Projekt: Zur Soziologie der Geburt (Event: München), Deadline: 15.01.2009

Mittwoch, Dezember 17th, 2008

Deutsches Jugendinstitut München e.V. (Dr. Karin Jurczyk), Sektion Kultursoziologie (Prof. Dr. Stephan Moebius) und Frauen- und Geschlechterforschung (Prof. Dr. Paula-Irene Villa) der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Soziologie, München

Zeit: 10.-11.07.2009,
Ort: LMU München
Deadline: 15.01.2009

Erstaunlicherweise existieren bislang – weder national noch international – kaum dezidiert soziologische Analysen zum Thema Geburt. Dies ist umso bemerkenswerter, als Geburt ebenso wie Tod kein bloßes bio-physiologisches Phänomen darstellt, sondern aufs engste mit sozialen, politischen und kulturellen Vorstellungen und Ritualen sowie einer Vielzahl verschiedener Praxen verbunden ist. Entsprechende Ansatzpunkte und damit auch Anstöße für soziologische Analysen finden sich reichlich:

  • Welche Praktiken und Imaginationen gibt es rund um die Geburt?
  • Wie wird (mehr …)

Ort: Otto-Braun-Saal der Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin – PK Potsdamer Straße 33; 10785 Berlin

Wissenschaftliche Forschung ist in höchstem Maße auf Primärquellen angewiesen. Literarische Nachlässe sind solche Primärquellen: Briefe, Notizen, Manuskripte oder gedruckte Bücher, Exzerpte, Fotos und andere persönliche Dokumente und Objekte geben Aufschluss über „Leben, Werk und Wirkung“ der Nachlasserin/des Nachlassers – oder auch Vorlasserin/Vorlassers – und ihre/seine Zeit. (Einem modernen Schriftstellernachlass werden durchaus auch „born-digital“-Zeugnisse, literarische Weblogs und Ähnliches zuzuordnen sein.)

Noch vor wenigen Jahrzehnten wurden derartige Hinterlassenschaften als marginales Sammelgut angesehen, das (mehr …)

International Conference: Gender Change in Academia: Re-mapping the fields of work, knowledge, and politics from a gender perspective, 13.-15.02.2009, Göttingen

Dienstag, Dezember 16th, 2008

International Conference at the Georg-August-University of Goettingen
13 to 15 February 2009

The conference invites international as well as national speakers and participants, from research, practice, and gender politics, to discuss new directions of research, knowledge, and gender politics and the intersections of these fields. The starting point shall be the current re-modelling of the European Academic space by the Bologna process, aiming at the homogenization of European Academia, and expressing itself in huge processes of re-structuring that differ between the national academic landscapes. From a gender perspective, relevant changes will occur in three dimensions:

First Dimension: Work and Careers
Working conditions and academic trajectories will be re-shaped for both (mehr …)
