CFP: Gender, Memory and Genocide

Conference: Gender, Memory and Genocide. An International Conference Marking 100 Years Since the Armenian Genocide
Place: Berlin, Germany
Date: June 4-6, 2015
Submission deadline for abstracts: November 30, 2014
Description: »The history of genocide and its aftermath cannot be understood without taking gender into account. As research on the history of the Holocaust and other genocides has demonstrated, genocidal violence has different but related effects on men and women, on gender relations and on gender hierarchies. Its processes have imposed new meanings on biological differences, femininity and masculinity, and on sexuality. Post-genocidal periods have witnessed the reconstitution of gender relations and the gendering of memory. Histories and memories of genocide are deeply gendered, both in their content and their silences.«
