CFP: Gender and Violence from Historical and Contemporary Perspectives

Book: Gender and Violence from Historical and Contemporary Perspectives
Editors: Jyoti Atwal and Iris Fleßenkämper
Submission deadline for abstracts: March 14, 2016
Description: »The book will focus on sexual violence, especially on its function in establishing and distinguishing group identities. Occasionally, in several pre-modern and modern cultures, the sexual purity of (primarily) women serves as a marker for the moral integrity of the family or the larger group. Violent assaults on the sexual reputation of women are therefore often associated with the defamation of a social or religious community, be it their family/clan or other groups to which the victims belong. The book will therefore examine the meanings and functioning of sexual violence within different social and religious systems.«

CFP: Early Modern Trauma

Book: Early Modern Trauma
Editors: Erin Peters and Cynthia Richards
Submission deadline for abstracts: May 1, 2016
Description:
»With this in mind, we seek to compile an interdisciplinary collection of essays that explores the concept of trauma in an early modern context. In applying trauma theory to the early modern period, we are not seeking to engage in retrospective diagnosis but rather to discover what the application of trauma theory can reveal about the early modern period and, conversely, what conceptualisations of psychological trauma from the early modern period can tell us about trauma theory itself.
We invite preliminary proposals for papers that address any aspects of the issue of psychological trauma in the early modern period. Topics may include, but are not limited to, the narration, treatment, and/or attempts to name and conceptualise psychological wounds, as well as the ways in which trauma can shape both individual and collective memory. We also encourage (interdisciplinary) papers that explore the methodology of applying modern traumatology to an early modern context. Additional topics may include: combat-related trauma; multigenerational legacies of trauma; exile; slavery; healing and recovery; environmental devastation; witnessing; and commemoration/memorialisation. Finally, we welcome papers that explore the potential impact of developing the area of early modern trauma studies for the fields of traumatology and early modern studies.«
