CfP – Women in Transnational Movements in the Long 20th Century

Women in Transnational Movements in the Long 20th Century

Deadline – 30.06.2009

Women in Transnational Movements in the Long 20th Century
GENESIS, co-edited by Elisabetta Bini and Arnaldo Testi

The Italian historical journal “Genesis: Rivista della Società Italiana delle Storiche” will devote one of its next issues to transnational women?s movements in the long 20th Century, from the last third of the 19th Century to the present.
The issue aims at analyzing the transnational dimension in its full, radical meaning. We are interested in exploring the specific forms of action, discourse and language which were allowed or generated by the “trans/national” dimension, as an autonomous terrain of cultural production, not as an area of interaction and mediation among pre-determined national passions and interests (inter/national).
To the usual suspects — suffragist and feminist organizations — we add professional and business all-female associations as well as “separate” or mixed-gender pacifist groups, benevolent and charity societies, “moral” and family reformers, advocates of new reproductive politics and policies, queer and transgender groups.

Interested parties should send a 1-page proposal, along with a 2-page CV, by June 30, 2009, to Elisabetta Bini (elisabetta.bini@nyu.edu) and Arnaldo Testi (testi@stm.unipi.it). Successful applicants will be expected to email their articles by January 31, 2010.
