What does “queering memory” mean under the political, social and cultural conditions of the present? How can the diversity of queer histories be made visible in these digitized times? ALMS 2019 Berlin will explore the potential for generating publicities for queer archives, libraries, museums and special collections, with a special focus on the arts and artistic interventions. We use the word “queer” to include both same-sex or bi-sexuality and histories of trans identity and gender diversity.

ALMS 2019 invites people from all over the world working in queer archives, libraries, special collections and museums, researching the queer past or generally interested in queer history. Archivists, librarians, museum staff and custodians of special collections from public, private, academic and grassroots institutions or organizations are all highly welcome. Artists and scholars working on any aspect of the queer past, in any region of the world, are encouraged to apply.

Main Topics & Key Issues

1. Queering Memory and Rewriting History
2. Collecting Queer Art and Artistic Perspectives on Queer History
3. Archives and Libraries as Armories against Homo- and Transphobia; Read more and source … (Web)

„Brot und Rosen“

Am 18. Dezember sind es genau 100 Jahre, dass die Wahlordnung zur konstituierenden Nationalversammlung mit dem allgemeinen Wahlrecht beschlossen wurde. Stellvertretend für viele porträtiert Susanne Ayoub im Stück „Brot und Rosen“ zwei Vertreterinnen der österreichischen Frauenbewegung: die bürgerliche Schriftstellerin Rosa Mayreder, die sich für Bildung und gesellschaftliche Anerkennung der Frauen einsetzte – und die Sozialdemokratin Adelheid Popp, die Anliegen der Arbeiterinnen vertrat, vor allem die bis heute nicht erreichte Forderung: Gleicher Lohn für gleiche Arbeit. Im Stück werden die unterschiedlichen Lebensgeschichten der zwei Aktivistinnen beschrieben, ihr gesellschaftliches und politisches Umfeld.

Das Recht auf politische Partizipation von Frauen ist der Grundstein für gesellschaftliche Gleichstellung. Auch wenn die Gleichstellung von Frauen bezüglich politischer Beteiligung noch lange nicht erreicht ist: Frauen sind immer noch deutlich weniger in politischen und wirtschaftlichen Funktionen vertreten. Und es gibt nach wie vor viele, die (mehr …)

Vortrag: Theresa Adamski: Geschlechterdiskurse und wirtschaftliches Denken in der „Internationalen Arbeiter-Assoziation“ der Zwischenkriegszeit, 12.12.2018, Wien

Donnerstag, November 29th, 2018

Vortrag im Rahmen der Reihe Geschichte am Mittwoch (PDF)

Zeit: 12.12.2018, 18.30-20.00 Uhr
Ort: HS 30, Universität Wien, 1. Stock, Universitätsring 1, 1010 Wien

  • Moderation: Peter Becker

1922 schlossen sich Arbeiter_innenorganisationen, die sich selbst als Vertreterinnen des revolutionären Syndikalismus und Protagonist_innen der antiautoritären Gewerkschaftsbewegung verstanden, zur „Internationalen Arbeiter-Assoziation (IAA)“ zusammen. In ihren Statuten erklärte die IAA, sich „gegen die Offensive des Kapitalismus“ und „gegen die Politikanten aller Nüancen“ zu richten. Jedes Mitglied müsse sich bewusst sein, dass „die endgültige Befreiung der Arbeiter“ nur dann möglich sei, wenn die Arbeiter selbst „vom Grund und Boden sowie von den Fabriken“ Besitz ergreifen und diese „in dem Sinne […] verwalten, daß die Produktion fortgesetzt werden kann.“ Dieses wirtschaftliche Denken bildete die Basis der Zukunftsgenerierungen und der Handlungsaufrufe revolutionärer Syndikalist_innen.

Ausgehend von der Annahme, dass die Herstellung und Reproduktion der sozial erwünschten Geschlechterordnung elementarer Bestandteil des Wirtschaftens war, wird in dem Vortrag die Wechselwirkung der Kategorien Arbeit, Wirtschaft und Geschlecht dargestellt. Als Quellen dienen dabei Publikationen der IAA und ihrer Unterorganisationen.

Theresa Adamski ist prae-doc-Assistentin am Institut für Geschichte der Universität Wien und arbeitet derzeit an ihrer Dissertation zu Wirtschaft, Arbeit und Geschlecht in revolutionär-syndikalistischen Arbeiter_innenbewegungen der Zwischenkriegszeit. Sie hat Studien in Geschichte und Architektur abgeschlossen und studiert Gender Studies mit den Schwerpunkten Dis/Ability Studies und Science and Technology Studies. Theresa Adamski ist außerdem Schlagzeugerin, Gitarristin und Sängerin und hält feministische Band-Workshops.

The University of South Dakota’s Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program (Web)

Venue: University of South Dakota
Time: March 12-14, 2019
Proposals by December 15, 2018

In the past year, the #MeToo movement catalyzed an international discussion about continuing widespread sexual harassment and sexual violence. It has also raised awareness about the context in which stories are told, heard or silenced.

People have asked a variety of questions in efforts to understand how and why marginalized figures are able to speak, be seen and be heard. What role does community play? Narrative and discursive frameworks? Who is being represented and who remains invisible? Where does lack of coverage persist? How does storytelling function as healing and self-care, as a form of resistance, but what risks does it also invite?

This year, the Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program invites individuals across disciplines to present their work on (Un)Told Stories and grapple with the personal and societal politics of storytelling at the intersection of gender and sexuality and other marginalized group identities, both today and historically.

CfP: Stonewall at 50 and Beyond: Interrogating the Legacy and Memory of the 1969 Riots (Event, 06/2019, Paris): DL: 01.12.2018

Mittwoch, November 28th, 2018

University of Paris-Est Creteil, France/IMAGER and Paris-Dauphine University (Paris-Sciences-et-Lettres)/IRISSO (UMR 7170-1427) (Web)

Time: 03-05.06.2019
Venue: Paris

The original announcement of the conference was followed by well-founded criticism regarding the organizing committee’s and scientific committee?s lack of inclusiveness. The composition of these two committees was consequently modified. The call for papers below was revised by the new organizing committee.

The Stonewall riots are fraught with a conflictual memory. A standard narrative might read as follows: In the night of June 27, 1969, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender patrons of the Stonewall Inn, a Greenwich Village bar on Christopher Street in New York, refuse to endure yet another occurrence of the police harassment they routinely faced. For five days and nights, the neighborhood was the scene of a confrontation between rioters and the police. In the following weeks and months, this upsurge reinforced emerging liberation movements that coalesced into a diverse political force. The events were celebrated the following year and have since generally been presented as „the birth of the gay liberation movement“ That is commemorated in today’s yearly LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) pride marches.

On the fiftieth anniversary of Stonewall, this conference aims to shed critical light on this major event and its possible effects on the development of LGBTQ mobilizations around the world. It seeks to investigate the processes of memorialization, as well as the political legacy and the cultural and activist representations of Stonewall. (mehr …)

Conference of the Commission on Women and Gender Studies in History of Science, Technology and Medicine (PDF)

Venue: Tel Aviv and Ra’anana, IR
Time: 17-20 June 2019
Proposals by: 15 January 2019

The conference will explore the multilayered relations of gender and science, technology, and medicine (STM) in war and peace. A vast historical scholarship exists on gender and STM, yet historians have under-analyzed contexts associated with war and peacetime (itself defined in relation to war). Across historical periods a great number of scientists and engineers were actively engaged in peace efforts; science was directly linked to military ends; medicine served the aftermath of devastating wars; and technological innovations benefited from military funding.

But what role did gender play? The organizers prompt scholars to consider the ways in which STM during times of war and peace have been gendered, not only with an emphasis on the role of women’s participation but also on gender modes of participation in an array of activities related to the binary of war and peace.

When the French pharmaceutical company Roussell Uclaff, a subsidiary of the German chemical giant Hoechst AG, was ready to introduce an abortion pill in 1988, American activists flooded the company’s headquarters near Frankfurt with protest letters. In response, the company’s German CEO mandated to stop the project. But the French state – a Hoechst minority shareholder – took the idea across the border, patented it, and embarked on medical trials for the new product in France.

Ten years later, scientists in the United States successfully isolated human embryonic stem cells. The country’s regulatory framework had left them free to let the cells proliferate indefinitely. But researchers adopted concepts implemented in Britain to limit the cells’ growth to 13 days after gestation.

Such examples illustrate the transnational implications of controversies arising from scientific research and therapies evolving in academic settings and in companies coordinating their efforts globally. Global research practices have raised questions about the … read more and source (Web).
