International conference Against Conventions "Uncommon Social Roles of Women and Men from Early Modern Times to 1945"

30 November – 1 December 2017, Wroclaw, Poland.

Deadline - 30 August 2017

The Historical Institute of the University of Wroclaw hereby invites scholars and PhD students to join us for the international conference: Against Conventions. Uncommon Social Roles of Women and Men from Early Modern Times to 1945 to be held in Wroclaw, November 30th – December 1st, 2017. The organizers propose to use tools which the category of gender gives in humanistic and social studies. However, we would like to overcome present tendencies to separate studies related to women or men. We hope that during the meeting it will be possible to capture mechanisms occurred while undertaking tasks which were contrary to social norms from both „feminine”, and „masculine” perspectives. We are aware that definitely more women  struggled with social boundaries. Nevertheless, we consider the reflection on men’s experience, who also faced such challenges, as equally important.

Міжнародна конференція «Гендер, війни та революції»

6-8 жовтня 2017 року – Одеса, Україна

Термін подання - до 1 липня 2017

Після Сараєво в 2014 році, Бейрута в 2015 році та Єревана в 2016 році наступна щорічна міжнародна конференція проводитиметься в Одесі восени 2017 року. Під час конференції розглядатимуться різні аспекти соціальних і політичних перетворень гендерних відносин, особливо в житті жінок, внаслідок століття війн, революцій і відбудови миру, в яких жіноцтво відігравало виняткову роль як у якості воїтельок, так і в якості миротворок – із значними соціальними наслідками. Ми вирішили провести нашу наступну конференцію в Україні, країні, яка історично кидала виклик як нав’язуванню радянської влади, так і її спадщині.
