Organisation: Sandro Guzzi-Heeb, Thomas David, Stéphanie Ginalski, Frédéric Rebmann

Place: University of Lausanne
Time: 25.-27.02.2010
Deadline: 20.02.2010

This international conference will bring together researchers in various disciplines such as history, sociology, anthropology and demography, in order to compare the approaches, methods and tools used in network analysis. One of the aims of this Conference is to highlight the contribution of the network analysis for the historians, as this method has been relatively neglected by this discipline so far.

The discussion will be articulated around five main topics:

  • Family and kinship
  • Methods
  • Mobilisation and social movements
  • Social networks and business elites
  • Cultural networks (mehr …)

More than a retrospective, the aim of this conference is to create a space for debate about the issues facing feminists today and celebration of feminist work. WLM@40 will capture the energy, vibrancy and vision of the first conference, building on the foundations that it laid. The conference will reflect on the historical significance of the 1970 (and later) conferences, share information and skills for contemporary feminist activism, create and celebrate feminist art and look to the future of feminism(s). Speakers will cut across boundaries of age, class, location and sexuality and voices that were originally absent will now be heard. (mehr …)

Elisabeth Vykoukal – Begrüßung
Jeanne Wolff Bernstein – Zur Idee des „Sinthoms“ bei Jacques Lacan. Ein klinischer Workshop zum Lustbegriff der Symptome.

Am Anfang seines Werkes beschrieb Jacques Lacan das Symptom als eine Schrift, die es zu entziffern gilt. Jedoch entwickelte Lacan in seinem späteren Werk die viel radikalere Idee, dass das Symptom die Jouissance (Genießen) des Subjekts einschließt und zugleich ausdrückt. Anstatt das Symptom als eine metaphorische Botschaft zu verstehen, wird das Sinthom als Kern des Genuss-haften verstanden, das dem Menschen die Möglichkeit bietet seine Lust ganz individuell zu gestalten. Egal wie zerstörend das Sinthom sein mag, es entpuppt sich immer wieder als die notwendige Basis jedes Lebens. Insofern beinhaltet das Ende jeder Analyse die Aufgabe mit seinem Sinthom leben zu können. (mehr …)

Social Science History Association 2010 Meeting (Web)35th Annual Meeting

Dear Colleagues, I am working to construct a session for the 2010 Social Science History Association meeting (Chicago, 18-21 November) around Gender and Governmentality. There are currently two papers attached to the session, one analyzing the transmission of early modern, cameralist concepts through economics, sociology, and bureaucratic initiative into the modern German welfare state, and one on about the Hindu Code bill fight in India just following independence. We are open to other potential papers with any chronological or geographic scope that engage with „gendering“ the Foucauldian concept of governmentality.

This year’s conference theme is „Politics and Power,“ and more information about it and the association may be found at The deadline for submissions is February 15 and we would like to finalize this session by February 1. Please reply to me off-list at if you are interested in joining such a session. Thanks, Marynel Ryan Van Zee

CfP: Power and Politics (Event: 11/2010, Chicago); DL: 15.02.2010

Social Science History Association 2010 Meeting (Web) – 35th Annual Meeting

Chicago, Illinois, 18-21 November, 2010

The 2010 Program Committee seeks panel proposals that will focus on Power and Politics. Power is a foundational concept in history and the social sciences, and just as clearly a contested one. Traditionally, the understanding of power as the capacity to enact one’s will against resistance and images of the coercive, central state apparatus held sway, and these are still compelling visions.

More recently, we have seen the emergence of a rather different conception of power as a diffuse set of forces, at work in the practices of everyday life, which may entangle actors in their own subjection. Here, the analysis of power has expanded to include the constitution of domination outside the formal polity, in forms of inequality and difference such as race, gender, or sexuality, or in terms of capillary processes working through classification systems, therapeutic discourses, and other technologies of regulation.
