Call for Papers: European Women’s Movements

The Research Platform Repositioning of Women’s and Gender History
(university of Vienna/Europe) calls for submissions for the Bulletin board
on the History of European Women’s Movements including scientific
papers proving academic qualification.

Since the 1980s research on the history of the so-called first and second
women’s movement in Europe evolves from different perspectives, mostly in
the form of scientific papers proving academic qualification.

At the same time the historiography of women’s movements still notes
lengthy gaps, thus raising desiderata for its research. Not only is this
gap traced back to the fact that yet only a few monographs and anthologies
are published. Moreover university publication series on this topic are
mostly unreleased. Historians dealing with women’s movements from
different countries are hardly linked. The workshop “Women’s Movement
linked, Historiography and Documentation” organized by Ariadne, Austrian
National Library and the Department for Contemporary History Vienna
University on April 20th, 2007 was a first step towards furthering an
exchange at least within Austria. (You will find a list of links for the
quoted projects below.)

The Research Platform Repositioning of Women’s and Gender History’s Call
for Papers addresses all who currently work on a diploma thesis or
dissertation dealing with the History of European Women’s Movements (19th
till 21st Century)- or all who finished their work in the last two years
and have not published it (yet).

The abstract (about 1.000 characters) should comprise the following:
-) The topic
-) The used sources
-) The particular key question(s)
-) Results of your research
-) Open questions

Furthermore the date of completion as well as potential publications can
be named. The authors will be able to present and put their texts into
discussion in the virtual forum Salon 21. Thus along with knowledge on
current research contacts should be established.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact:
Christa Hämmerle: christa.ehrmann-haemmerle[at]univie.ac.at
and Li Gerhalter: frauennachlaesse.geschichte[at]univie.ac.at

Please do also contribute to the current discussion “Volume Women’s
Movement” on the basis of two statements on the book “Women’s Movements,
Networks and Debates in post-communist Countries in the 19th and 20th
Centuries”, edited by Edith Saurer, Margareth Lanzinger, and Elisabeth
Frysak (Köln/Weimar 2006).
