CFP: Women and Genocide: An Anthology

Book: Women and Genocide: An Anthology
Editors: JoAnn DiGeorgio-Lutz and Donna Gosbee
Submission deadline for abstracts: June 1, 2014
Description: »The editors of Women and Genocide: An Anthology to be published by Canadian Scholar’s Press Inc./Women’s Press in 2015, invite chapter submissions of original research from interdisciplinary scholars on narratives, memoirs, and testimonies of women survivors of the following genocides: North American indigenous, Armenian, Holocaust/Jewish, Holocaust/Roma-Sinti, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Guatemala, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Sudan. This edited book examines the unique experiences of women in comparative genocidal contexts. In our view, gender matters. We are interested in examining how women processed their identity as women in both a physical and emotional context. In a physical context we are interested in exploring how women addressed their gendered identity, for example, if they lost their hair, experienced amenorrhea, were forced to dress uniformly, or suffered sexual exploitation. Emotionally, we are interested in understanding how women processed what was happening to them as individuals and their gendered roles as mothers, daughters, sisters, etc. in the larger genocidal context.«
