    “Medicalized” Childbirth as a Public Problem

    Risk Culture(s), Gender Politics, Techno-Reflexivities

    Obstetrical knowledge, technologies and practices have dramatically transformed women’s reproductive experiences worldwide. Medicalization of childbirth was accelerated in the XXth century by the displacement of childbirth from home to the hospital, and by the generalization of surgical techniques and pharmaceutical products. Medical interventionism took multiple, situated forms. Relying on cross-cultural investigations and field data from diverse national contexts (France, USA, Italy, Brazil, Senegal, Turkey, Switzerland, Canada…), this international workshop investigates how “technological” birth came into being, and how it is produced, problematized, framed, and negotiated in the XXIst century.

    Love, Sex, and War: Towards another History of 20th Century, Europe

    Workshop One – Sources for Historians of Love, Sex, and War

    This workshop will launch a two-year research project focusing on the history of love, sex, and war in Europe. Historian Dagmar Herzog has called the 20th century “the century of sex,” while Laura Lee Downs and Kathleen Canning consider it a time when “gender troubles” emerged. Yet, the 20th century also initiated greater equality between the sexes and increasing liberalization of sexual norms and rights. Both categories – gender and sexuality – profoundly shaped the last century. Two world wars, genocide, and other episodes of mass violence make it crucial to examine European societies from a social and cultural perspective and to ask: what role did gender and sexuality play in these events? The workshop aims to identify specific sources that explore emotional realms such as affection, desire, inhibitions, repulsion, and grief.

    Class, Gender and Peacebuilding in Peru (1961-2014)

    Según el historiador Franklin Pease, ‘hacer una historia de la subversión en el Perú con elemental seriedad, requiere disponer de información confiable, casi nunca al alcance del investigador’. Trabajar sobre grupos alzados en armas que se organizaron en el marco de la 'lucha de clases' desde los años 1960, es tarea difícil en la medida en que significa trabajar sobre la clandestinidad. Nombrar, investigar o repensar a grupos como el ‘Partido Comunista del Perú-Sendero Luminoso’ (PCP-SL) y el Movimiento Revolucionario Tupac Amaru (MRTA) supone un peligro para el investigador: ser llamado ‘terrorista’ es común en un medio donde el discurso oficial y el discurso académico han confluido para dar una versión única. Maritza Felices-Luna y Anouk Guiné los invita a someter un capitulo para el libro colectivo que sigue el coloquio internacional « Clase, Género y Construccion de la Paz en el Peru (1961-2014) » que se llevo a cabo en Ayacucho (Peru) en julio 2014.

    La santé des familles monoparentales au Royaume-Uni

    Du Black Report au rapport Marmot (1990-2010)

    La durée de vie des Anglais a augmenté mais les disparités sanitaires se sont accentuées dans le même temps (Marmot, 2010). L’objectif de la journée d’études permettra de lever le voile sur ces phénomènes et de les analyser au regard d’enquêtes qualitatives et quantitatives par exemple. Il s’agira d’étudier les réalités de la vie quotidienne de ces parents, les inégalités sociales et géographiques en matière de santé, de comprendre les mécanismes et d’envisager les enjeux sanitaires sur les futures générations tout en sachant que la responsabilité de la santé publique est transférée du National Health Service aux collectivités locales, selon les propositions du gouvernement de coalition.

    Women in Educated Elites of Pre-Socialist and Early Socialist East Central European Societies

    The opening up to modernity of East Central Europe since the late 19th century was marked – among other things – by a triple process generating structural transformations of established post-feudal societies and affecting often radically the status of women. Due to post-feudal conditions of competition for social standing, positions of influence and prestige, hitherto unknown forms of inequalities appeared in the very process of accumulation of political, economic, professional, cultural an educational assets henceforth necessary for the access to the elites. Female professionals, though they could rarely achieve advanced careers in the ruling elites in the old regime, so much so that they often encountered even various forms of public rejection and discrimination on intellectual markets, significantly participated in the framing of the way of life of the new middle class. This workshop will adopt a gender-focused perspective cocentrating on the place of women (training, education, professions) and bringing to light the differences and inequalities existing between male and female members of educated elites.

    Gender Roles in Wartime

    Dynamization Of Gender Roles in Wartime: An East European Perspective on World War II and its Aftermath

    While numerous studies have explored the effects of the occupying regimes on the respective societies, the impact of World War II on Gender relations has generally been treated as a rather marginal issue. In recent years, however, some important studies have been published shining light on various aspects of gender relations in times of war in Twentieth-Century Eastern Europe, and focusing on women as perpetrators, e.g. as “Agents of Germanization” (Harvey 2003), or as victims of sexual violence .The conference intends not only to piece the existing puzzle together, but to explore the interplay of World War II and gender roles in East Europe in a broad context.

    Domesticity and Religion

    La nouvelle historiographie socio-religieuse a mis en question la thèse de la sécularisation et la dichotomie entre un domaine public et un domaine privé. Néanmoins, au 19ème et la première moitié du 20ème siècle l’idéologie de la « domesticité » se répand et la famille devient plus que jamais le lieu où les pratiques religieuses prennent forme et dès lors un élément clé dans la formation des identités socio-religieuses des hommes et des femmes. Ces journées d’études veulent analyser les différentes modalités selon lesquelles hommes et femmes organisèrent leur vie et éducation religieuse en famille, et l’impact des structures domestique, y compris l’architecture et les interactions privé - public.
