Dabei geht es um bewegte und bewegende Frauen- und Lesbengeschichte(n) – von der Ersten über die Neue Frauenbewegung bis hin zu aktuellen queer-feministischen Debatten. Vom Tomatenwurf bis zum Cyberfeminismus, von Kampagnen gegen §218 bis zur Reform des Sexualstrafrechts, über die Frauenhausbewegung bis zur Realität jüdischer lesbischer Frauen: Wo gibt es Unterschiede, was verbindet?

Somit schlägt die Sommeruniversität 2018 Bögen von Bewegungsgeschichte zu aktuellen politischen Fragen, von Archiv-Beständen zu heute aktuellen Themen. Und alle sind dabei herzlich willkommen: Ob feministische Blogger*innen, Aktivist*innen der autonomen Szene oder Gleichstellungsbeauftragte; ob Studierende, Lehrende oder Medien- und Kulturschaffende; ob akademisch oder aktivistisch – oder die, die es einmal werden möchten.

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 31st, 2018

University of Paris-Est Créteil, France / IMAGER (Web)

Venue: Paris-Dauphine University (Paris-Sciences-et-Lettres) / IRISSO
Time: June 3rd–5th, 2019

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)

Signs. Journal of Women in Culture and Society, Special Issue „Public Feminisms“ (Web)

Submissions by September 15, 2018

Even as antifeminist and right-wing forces have gained footholds worldwide, feminists have forcefully asserted themselves in the public sphere as key voices of resistance. From the Women’s Marches around the world that took place the day after Donald Trump was inaugurated, to the 2012 protests in Delhi, to a new resurgence of writers proudly adopting the moniker, feminists have organized to claim public space and a public voice. It is no overstatement to claim that „the resistance“ is being led by women, with intersectional feminism at its core.

Meanwhile, a shifting media landscape has enabled contradictory dynamics: feminists—through innovative uses of social media and online media outlets, as well as mainstream media—have found (and created) platforms to amplify their public voices, yet the pool of public intellectuals and the punditry continues to be largely dominated by white men.

CfP: Organized Labor, the City, and the Grassroots: An International Workshop on the History of Urban Social Movements (Event, 01/2019, Jerusalem); DL: 15.09.2018 [REMINDERIN]

The global protest cycle of 2011 has brought to life a plethora of urban social movements. From occupying Puerta del Sol in downtown Madrid to pitching tents on Tel Aviv’s Rothschild Boulevard, from struggles against evictions in Cape Town to the tenants’ movement of Warsaw, from Gezi Park to Wall Street–cities across the globe witnessed waves of collective action that were genuinely urban in both form and content. In the light of these events, historians have rediscovered the rich legacy of past urban struggle.

But notwithstanding the growing number of contributions that analyze urban riots, rent strikes, anti-eviction campaigns, housing reform initiatives or struggles for access to collective consumption and political participation in the cities of the nineteenth and early twentieth century, past urban protest is usually studied in a heavily localized and temporalized context that tends to shun comparison across borders or through time. By default skeptical of generalizations, historians are thus contributing to the widespread perception in the social sciences that urban social movements somehow appeared out of thin air in the aftermath of the rebellious 1960s.

CfP: Globordered Intimacies: Immigration and Gendered Labor, Family and Personal Relationships (Event: Tel Aviv, 06/2019); DL: 15.09.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Our era is characterized by intense voluntary and forced border-crossing. Short and long-term immigration, for work and multitude of other reasons, has become a part of the biographies of millions, turning „Transnational Families“, „World-Families“, and „Globordered Families“ – in which family members move from one country to the other, or live in different countries – into a significant phenomenon. Yet, much is still to be empirically studied, culturally analyzed, normatively discussed, and theoretically conceptualized in relation to the intersection of immigration, families, and gender.

Moreover, as the title of this conference highlights, families are not the only gendered intimate domain affected by immigration. For example, it has been claimed that friendshipsare “taking over various soci al tasks, duties, and functions, from family and kin.” (Phal 2000, 8). These “hidden solidarities” are less visible and institutionalized than the solidarity established in familial relations, and are seriously understudied. Another site for the study of non-familial solidarities is the workplace. For example, research in this field suggests that non-traditional forms of solidarity created with others in and outside the workplace can be crucial in the lives of migrant and other workers to prevent severe lab or market exploitation, and human trafficking.

CfP: Theater in queerem Alltag und Aktivismus der 1970er und 1980er Jahre (Event, 10/2018, Berlin); DL: 15.09.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Donnerstag, August 30th, 2018

Bei einem Blick auf Performance-, Tanz- und Theaterarbeiten der 1970er und 1980er Jahre überrascht, wie zentral dort das Spiel mit Geschlechterrollen, Fragen von Geschlecht und sexueller Identität sind – ohne dass dies sich in der theaterwissenschaftlichen Literatur dieser Zeit wiederspiegelt. Zudem gibt es eine vielfältige queere Theaterkultur, die in der hegemonialen (Theater-)Geschichtsschreibung und damit auch in der kulturellen Erinnerung bisher kaum auftaucht, ja weitestgehend unbekannt ist.

Queerness nimmt bis heute in der (deutschsprachigen) Theaterwissenschaft nur eine marginale Rolle ein, es fehlt sowohl an theoretischer Reflexion wie auch an historischen Beispielen und Forschungen. Wird über queere Performance – und Theorie – nachgedacht, richtet sich der Blick meist in die USA. Doch welche spezifischen, lokalen lesbisch-schwul-trans* Theater-Geschichten gibt es in Ost- und Westdeutschland der 1970er und 1980er Jahre, in der Zeit des Kalten Krieges, des Konservatismus, aber auch der zunehmenden politischen Annäherungen und Liberalisierungen?

Die Tagung setzt auf eine weiten Theaterbegriff, der sowohl unterschiedliche Genres (Theater, Tanz, Performance) und das Gebiet des angewandten Theaters als auch Aufführungen in Sub- und Populärkultur umfasst. Im Fokus sollen dabei besonders … weiterlesen und Quelle (Web).

CfP: Silhouettes of the Soul: Meditations on Fashion, Religion, and Subjectivity (Edited Volume); DL: 15.09.2018 [REMINDERIN]

Is fashion always frivolous and religion always sanctimonious? What is the relationship between dress and the depths of the soul? This project began with a session at the 2017 American Academy of Religion Annual Meeting. Panelists examined the interplay of religious, ethical, and sociohistorical dimensions of subject formation as assembled and expressed through fashion. These papers focused on the generative potential of tensions and transgressions in this interplay, such as the paradox between conformity and innovation whether preparing a sermon or tying a scarf. Sites of inquiry included the classroom, the sanctuary, the street, and our grandmother?s closets, signaling new locations for religious and fashion subjectivity.

As we continue this conversation, our aim with this volume is to move beyond traditional, social scientific and historical analysis of religious attire and adornment to an examination of conscience through fashion, style, and dress. Our focus reflects the movement of religious and theological discourses outside institutional spaces and dogmatic vocabularies, just as it favors the new look of (mehr …)
