Gendered Memories of War and Political Violence
Budapest, 7-8 December 2012
Young Researchers Conference
Central European University
Workshop organized in the framework of the Central European University-Sabancı University Joint Academic Initiative
20th century has been a century of wars, genocides, and other forms of political violence. It has also been a century of feminist struggle and theorizing globally. At the peak of what is sometimes called the “memory boom,” this conference seeks to explore the different ways in which wars, genocides, and other forms of political violence are remembered through a gender lens. Central questions include (but are not limited to):
The working language of the conference will be English. Students working on their MA or PhD thesis, or recent graduates (up to one year), from all disciplines are encouraged to apply. Priority will be given to papers that deal with Europe (in the largest sense of the term) or Europe’s connection to the discussed context, but other papers will also be considered.
Please submit an abstract (max. 500 words) outlining the relevance and novelty of your contribution, together with a 200 words resume. Presenters will be required to submit their presentation in writing prior to the workshop (on 15 November the latest).
There are no registration fees. Lunch, tea and coffee will be provided for all participants and the CEU staff will assist in finding reasonable accommodation in Budapest. Sabancı University students are eligible for travel and accommodation funding. Please indicate your funding needs when you submit your application.
The application deadline is 10 August 2012.
