6f8d78b78a4fe11ad5d146bfe94af3d9University of Guelph, Canada: „The Rural Diary Archive“ (Web)

Auf der Website werden die Scans von hand- oder maschingeschriebene Tagebuch-Aufzeichnungen aus den ländlichen Regionen der großen Provinz Ontario im Südosten Kanadas zur Verfügung gestellt. Derzeit sind es Aufzeichnungen von 24 verschiedenen Verfasser/innen. Diese Quellen sind Teil des Bestandes des „Rural Diary Archive“ an der University of Guelph.

Die frühesten der Aufzeichnungen in diesem Bestand gehen bis Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts zurück. Die Schreiber/innen waren häufig Migrant/innen aus Europa. Der Bestand wird laufend erweitert – und die Besucher/innen der Website sind aufgerufen, einzelne Seiten zu transkripieren. Entsprechend ist die Website als „Citizen-Science“-Projekt zu verstehen.

Beschreibung auf der Website: „Our archive showcases over 150 Ontario diarists from 1800 to 1960. Discover and Meet the Diarists are good places to get acquainted with these people from the past. Learn how to unlock the riches within their daily entries and escape into the past. You can read and search through handwritten or typed nineteenth-century diaries. Help us transcribe the handwritten ones to make these valuable sources accessible to all.“

CfP: Gendering Memory (Masculinities: A Journal of Identity and Culture); DL: 19.08.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Masculinities: A Journal of Identity and Culture; Special issue Editors: Andrea Petö and Ann Phoenix (Web)

Proposals due: 19.08.2018

Memory has become a buzzword in the study of the past and memory analysis is increasingly common. Yet, new forms of political radicalization foreground memory politics in ways that are producing multi-faceted exclusions, intolerance and erasure as well as the exclusion of challenging memories from minoritised ethnic groups. At the same time, memory politics also produce new solidarities.

Some anniversaries that commemorate historical events force issues previously submerged into public view. For example, the 2017 Danish commemoration of the centenary of their sale of the Danish West Indies to the US (now the US Virgin Isles) raises questions about the meanings of loss of, or emancipation from, empire for colonisers and those colonised. The notion that repression of such memories have long-lasting and damaging cultural consequences is increasingly the subject of academic theorising. This is exemplified by Paul Gilroy’s (2005) notion that failure to engage with the lessons of the colonial period produces ‘postcolonial melancholia’(c.f. Goswami, 2013), which, as Jane Flax (2010) suggests results because burying the past does not obliterate the dead, who retur n to haunt us. Read more … (Web).

CfP: „The Family and the Household as a Workplace“: Feminist Labour History / Labour and Family Economy (Event, Amsterdam, 09/2019); DL: 10.09.2018

Third European Labour History Network (ELHN) meeting: Labour and Family Economy Working Group / Feminist Labour History Working Group (Web)

Time: 19.-21.09.2019
Venue: Amsterdam
Proposals by: 10.09.2018

Feminist labour history has for a long time been engaged in making women’s work visible and to integrate women’s work in households and families in the larger narratives of the history of work and the history of labour. More recently, the economic history and the history of the family have been deeply renewed by studies integrating the gender dimension and focusing on the household economy, a quite neglected issue until present. For this reason, the EHLN working groups “Feminist Labour History” and “Labour and family economy” launch a shared call for papers for the next ELHN conference (to be held in Amsterdam between the 19 and 21 September 2019). (CfP via PDF)

The organzisers want to address more particularly the following topics:

1) the family and the household as a workplace and a group of workers, including migrant worker families

2) family economies and agency, both the family economy as reason for protests and the effects of labour unrests for family economies

3) trade unions as vehicles and obstacles for women workers and family welfare (mehr …)

CfP: Monarchy and Modernity, 1500-1945 (Event: Cambridge, 01/2019); DL: extended: 15.08.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Montag, Juli 30th, 2018

Carolina Armenteros, Philippe Barthelet, and Andrew Thompson

Venue: University of Cambridge
Time: 08.-09.01.2019
Abstracts – extended – by: 15.08.2018

Europe’s past is overwhelmingly monarchical, yet the monarchies that remained in place at the end of the Second World War hardly resembled those that governed Europe at the end of the Middle Ages. Modernity transformed monarchy from a matter of fact into one of opinion, and enabled moving from a world where everything was sacred to one where all was profane. If words, then, remained the same – along with many of the families, their properties and places of residence – their meaning changed profoundly overtime and across countries. This is so much so that, along the centuries, European monarchy as an institution seems unrecognisable to any attentive observer. Even so, the present academic literature seldom measures the distance between monarchy’s various historical meanings and manifestations.

In theoretical and speculative disciplines, the lack of inquiry into monarchy’s significance is due partly to disciplinary divisions. Political theorists and intellectual historians rarely delve into the subject of monarchy, while historians of monarchy tend to focus on chronology and rarely ask questions pertaining to monarchy as a concept. Monarchism’s own nature (mehr …)

Special Issue of the Italian Journal „Contemporanea“ (Web)

Proposals by: 15.08.2018

A large body of scholarship has shown how the experience of the two world wars in the twentieth century was a crucial catalyst for the creation of modern welfare states. However, war’s role in social legislation has yet to be conceptualized more fully. In mainstream comparative literature on the welfare state, war is typically considered a rare, anomalous occurrence that is conceived as a kind of exogenous shock, as an ‚abnormal event‘, a ‚black swan‘ emergency or a critical juncture. In this way, war has constituted a gray zone in the history of the welfare state.

By contrast, the question of the origins and development of social protection systems has been viewed primarily in relation to processes of modernization or as an instrument for managing social conflict.

Nonetheless, recent studies of different national contexts have shown the fruitfulness of an approach that looks at the welfare state through the interpretative paradigm of the welfare-warfare link (for example: Scheidel 2017; Obinger–Petersen 2015; Castle 2010). Moreover, (mehr …)

Bericht im „Forschungsblog der ÖNB“ (Web) von Lydia Jammerneg zum Projekt „Inhaltsverzeichnisse sowie Volltexte historischer Frauenzeitschriften“

Seit Ende des 19. Jhds. expandierte die Frauenbewegungspresse und erreichte Anfang des 20. Jhds. eine beachtliche Vielfalt. Sie war ein wichtiges Mittel zur Organisation von Fraueninteressen und diente als Diskussions- und Informationsforum der Konsensbildung, der Schulung und Agitation und der Propaganda. Die Debatten und Themen der Zeit fanden darin ihren Niederschlag und spiegeln sich in ihrer Bandbreite darin wieder.

Je nach (partei-)politischer Ausrichtung berichtete die Frauenpresse über verschiedene Thematiken mit unterschiedlichen Gewichtungen und beteiligte sich am Diskurs über die ‚Frauenfrage‘. Durch die Publikation gegnerischer Stimmen wurde die öffentliche Aufmerksamkeit auf die Frauenpresse gelenkt. Weiterlesen … (Web)

10th European Spring School (ESS) on History of Science and Popularization; Organized by the Catalan Society for the History of Science; Coordinated by Montserrat Cabré and Teresa Ortiz-Gómez

Veneu: Institut Menorquí d’Estudis, Maó, Balearic Islands, Spain
Time: 23-25 May 2019
Proposals by: 30 October 2018

The aim of the 10th ESS is to encompass a diversity of themes around the axis of the historical construction of the gendered body as a locus of both empowerment and disempowerment and the place of the natural philosophical and biomedical disciplines in shaping the political and subjective dimensions of human experience.

The School is particularly concerned with exploring how diverse intellectual and social movements have struggled to gain authority and cultural hegemony over women’s bodies by way of defining sexual difference and the gendered body. Participants would be expected to address such issues as:

· Abortion and contraceptive cultures

· Expert knowledge and experiences of pregnancy and birth

· Feminist activism and body technologies (mehr …)
