History and Gender: Women under authoritarian regimes
As Morant i Ariño (2012) has pointed out, scholars have condemned the suggestion of using Gender in studies about war, diplomacy, Politics and others. Taking this into account, the Seminar History and Gender: Women under authoritarian regimes seeks to discuss how women’s lives may have been affected by dictatorships, the resistance movements, citizenship concepts and any other aspects related with the constraint of civil rights. Also, who were the women who supported those regimes? How did they engage in their propaganda?
The main idea is to debate how the ideologies of the regimes were translated into real Politics and their consequences. The Seminar is interested in works of any geography, but mainly focused on the 20th century. We encourage proposals about Women’s History, but also History of Childhood, Queer identities, and Gender Politics.
If you are interested in participating, please send an abstract (in Portuguese, Spanish or English) with no longer than 300 words with a short bio to the e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org until December 30th. The Seminar will be held online on January 31st.
