Female Figures in the Borders of war-torn Europe

October 11-12th, 2018, Paris Sorbonne University | Konference CfP
Women in the XIXth century were swept aside from politics that was primarily a men’s concern, and from the exercise of war. Therefore, due to their social status they seemed to be excluded from all forms of representation of Nation – which was a major issue of this XIXth century and of the First World War. The year of 1918 is the theatre of profound changes in literary and critical fields in Europe and bodes great upheavals in social and political contexts, notably by setting up a new standing for women in the “Roaring Twenties” that seemed to reinvent post-war femininity. Feminine characters stand at the center of these changeovers. They tend to become a mean of outreach for the popular culture increasing by war propaganda and by some avant-gardes that emerge from the conflicts.Gender studies in post-colonial fields, following the works of Benedict Anderson on “imagined communities” or these that concern subaltern studies, enable to consider the interactions both between imperialist policies and representations of women, and between movements of national and feminist emancipation. This conference will focus on the heuristic approach that this articulation builds when they refuse the anachronisms that such linkages may lead to in the investigation of Central European spaces at the turn of the XXth century. All this is about geographic, national, gendered and literary spaces. Because of the esthetic and political reconfigurations, central and oriental Europe around 1918 become the scene of major changes. This conference will focus on these concerns, by articulating the study of gendered representations and the historical and contextual issues about Europe as a space in mutation. Proposals are due May 1st, 2018. They should include a title, an abstract (of no more than 500 words), and a short biography including your university and department affiliation.

Cílem interdisciplinární konference je přispět k diskusi o éře „normalizace“ v jejích nejrůznějších podobách. Konference se zaměří především na procesy politických, sociálních a kulturních proměn v letech 1969 až 1989, ale i na životní realitu a vnitřní pluralitu „normalizační společnosti“.

Prosíme o koncepty (ca. 2000 znaků) přednášek v délce dvaceti minut, které se vztahují k výše jmenovaným otázkám. Konferenční jazyky jsou němčina a angličtina, abstrakty je možné podávat i v češtině nebo slovenštině.
