A growing awareness of transgender issues has intensified in recent years, especially after the high-profile media example of Caitlyn Jenner, the career ascension of Laverne Cox, and the cross-media achievements of Jazz Jennings.

Type: 
Call for Papers

May 31, 2018
Subject Fields: 
Contemporary History, Geography, Law and Legal History, Political Science, Military History

Transitions from war to peace have been one of the most fertile grounds for contemporary historical analysis in the last twenty years. In this last year of the Great War centenary, the “end of the conflict” topic (as well as the possible or impossible “return” to peace) will be the discussion focus among specialists in the 1914-1918 period. However, the numerous forms of war-exit are difficult to understand through a short-term perspective.

International Conference on Women and Politics

Type: 
Conference
Date: 
September 29, 2018
Location: 
United Kingdom
Subject Fields: 
Black History / Studies, Contemporary History, Political History / Studies, Political Science, Public Policy

Researchers and activists are invited to submit paper and/or panel proposals for this conference discussing contributions of women to politics. The historical contribution is particularly relevant as ‘her’ story in politics is still missing in academic work. In addition, it seems as if past prejudices do not differ much from the ones expressed in the present, and thus the conference also wants to tackle relations between historical representation and position of women in politics with the situation at present. How can history inform current debates?
