CFP – Ateliers SAGEF au Congrès SAES 2020 (Tours)

Pour le soixantième congrès annuel de la SAES qui aura lieu à l’Université de Tours, du 4 au 6 juin 2020, le thème retenu est “RenaissanceS”. Texte de cadrage : http://saesfrance.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/cadrage-Tours.pdf

La SAGEF y tiendra comme chaque année un atelier « Femmes, sexe, genre » et examinera toutes les propositions qui croiseront ces prismes d’analyse avec celui de RenaissanceS, aussi bien en littérature qu’en civilisation ou en linguistique. Le thème retenu semble particulièrement fécond pour aborder les problématiques et objets d’étude de la SAGEF puisqu’il s’agit notamment de changements de perspectives, de repositionnements, de transformations, qui peuvent s’appliquer aux corps, aux rapports sociaux de sexe, aux féminismes, etc. Autant de notions qui se trouvent également au coeur des études de genre.


Merci de faire parvenir vos propositions de 300 mots, accompagnées de votre affiliation avant le 20 Octobre à: Alexandrine Guyard-Nedelec (Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne): alexandrine.guyard-nedelec(at)univ-paris1.fr ET – Marc Calvini-Lefebvre (Aix-Marseille Université): marc.calvini-lefebvre(at)univ-amu.fr

Exhibition: City Women in the 18th Century

http://citywomen.hist.cam.ac.uk/

In the 18th century, many women worked in luxury manufacturing and sales in the Cheapside area between St Paul’s and the Royal Exchange. They were not only employed to make the clothing, jewellery, prints, fans, trunks and furniture on sale; they also ran some of the businesses. These women, all of whom were members of London’s livery companies, employed thousands more in their trades. Some of these elite employers produced highly ornamental trade cards to advertise their business. These represent only a fraction of all the business women trading over the 18th century. Others we know of through their printed products (e.g., Sarah Ashton, fanmaker), or an insurance policy (Eleanor Coade, merchant), or livery company records (Martha Gurney, printer).

Most of the surviving business cards are in two collections in the British Museum. The first collector was Sarah Sophia Banks (1744-1818). The sister of Joseph Banks, who collected items of natural history, she collected material relating to the social history of her own day. The second collector was Ambrose Heal (1872-1959), arts and crafts furniture designer and heir to Heal’s furniture shop which had been established in Tottenham Court Road since the 1850s.

This outdoor exhibition, over a 700-metre trail, explores the important role of women in commerce and manufacturing in 18th-century City.

Motherhood in Contemporary International Perspective

Edited by Fabienne Portier-Le Cocq, Routledge, 226 pages

https://www.routledge.com/Motherhood-in-Contemporary-International-Perspective-Continuity-and-Change/Cocq/p/book/9780367188436

Divided into 15 chapters, this book provides the reader with an insight into certain representations of mothers and motherhood in history and today’s societies in some areas of the world, notably in Britain and Asia.

Key facts about the history of motherhood are presented, together with the use of very recent notions and phrases portraying ‘good’ and ‘bad’ mothers. An analysis of the concepts of naming and blaming, along with regret with respect to mothers in 21st century societies, provides food for thought. Other issues addressed are varied and numerous: the politics of early intervention, feminist critique, mothers with disabilities and mothers of disabled children, incarcerated mothers, surrogate mothers, teenage mothers, lesbian mothers, and mothering in Eastern Asia, namely in China, Japan, and Korea. Interestingly, both visual arts and literature play a crucial role in this analysis.

The publication will appeal to students, academics, researchers, and the general public interested in and seeking to comprehend the shifts that have occurred over time in connection with the vast and inexhaustible subject of motherhood and mothers – a private and public matter. Readers are also provided with a rich reference section dealing with the latest publications on the issues tackled by prominent academics and researchers in human geography, women’s studies, sociology, gender studies, contemporary history, and the arts.
