CfP: Was it a man’s world? Intersections of gender and global history

Kategorien: Diversity, Antidiskriminierung, Intersektionalität; Europa und Internationales; Frauen- und Geschlechterforschung; Call for Papers

Christof Dejung, Historisches Institut, Universität Bern:

"In the last two decades, global history has altered the field of historical research profoundly. A brief look at recent publications in global history, however, shows that gender relations, and in particular the role of women, are barely mentioned. This conference will bring together scholars from different parts of the world to investigate the extent to which gender relations were a crucial aspect of the birth of the modern world in the long-nineteenth century."

Proposals of two pages (max.) should be sent to Christof Dejung, <christof.dejung@hist.unibe.ch> and Angelika Epple <aepple@uni-bielefeld.de> before 2 July 2021.

Accepted papers will be pre-circulated in advance of the workshop, which will be expected to be submitted by 30 June 2022.

The organizers are planning  a publication of selected contributions to the workshop, either in an edited volume or a special issue of a journal.

The conference will take place from 25 to 27 August 2022 at the University of Bern, Switzerland. For ecological reasons, the organizers are considering a hybrid format with some of the speakers being present and others participating via Zoom.
