CfP: Repenser les violences à l’égard des femmes dans le monde arabo-musulman

Mon, 2021-07-19 11:07

Appel à contribution pour un ouvrage collectif


L’ordre biologique a fait de nous des corps sexués, mâles et femelles, suivant notre composition hormonale, et nous  a programmés pour garantir la procréation de l’espèce à travers la sexualité.

Pourtant, depuis l’aube de l’humanité, les sociétés avaient commencé à fabriquer leurs normes sociales, culturelles et religieuses en donnant du sens aux différences biologiques et en bâtissant des rapports de pouvoir basés sur la domination du sexe masculin.

CfP: Narratives of Precarious Migrancy in the Global South

Thu, 2021-07-08 14:09

In recent years a small number of studies have sought to realign postcolonial studies with the material realities of disenfranchised, often illegalized modes of migration to the Global North. In his Postcolonial Asylum, David Farrier declared the figure of the asylum seeker a ‘scandal for postcolonial studies’ (1). A scandal first because asylum seekers expose a blindspot in the field, which has tended to understand mobility and displacement as empowering and has paid little heed to the material experience of migration for the politically, socially and economically dispossessed.

CfA: The Aesthetics of Protest Movements: The Politics and Culture of Discontent

Thu, 2021-07-08 14:06

Protesters worldwide employ aesthetics, objects, and emotions to achieve their various ends. The aesthetic elements of protest movements are used to mobilize onlookers’ imaginations as a major force for re-envisioning the past and present. The cultures of protest are diverse and multi-layered. They arise from the interaction of underlying social, political, and cultural factors.

CfP: Transnational and Transatlantic Fascism in East Central and Southeastern Europe, 1918–2018: Creations, Agencies, and Afterlives of Hybrid Movements

Thu, 2021-07-08 14:02

Fascism first appeared in East Central and Southeastern Europe in the early 1920s. Organizations and individuals in this part of the continent were influenced by Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany but also developed their own indigenous forms of fascism in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. Due to the heterogenous nature of East Central Europe, fascism took various forms in the territories that prior to 1918 had belonged to the Habsburg, German, Russian and Ottoman Empires. As a result, East Central Europe became a mosaic of fascist parties, organizations, and movements.
