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. This rising awareness has caused activism both for and against the transgender community and compels us to question many of the binaries that permeate popular culture.

One century of Diaspora: reflection day about emigration public policies

Lisbon (Sociedade de Geografia de Lisboa)
In the beginning of September 2017, the Council of Europe presented a parliamentary network in order to stimulate the debate about policies of Diasporas between 47 Member-States of the Council. The aim is to promote a concerted and an adequate answer to the situation of the current migration, in the name of the interdependency and of the solidarity between the North and the South.
IV International Congress: Picasso and History
Call for Papers
The Museo Picasso Málaga will host the Fourth International Congress on Pablo Picasso on the ninth, tenth and eleventh of October 2018, in the city of Málaga. Thanks to the initiative of the Musée national Picasso-Paris, since 2015 the congress has offered an annual forum where recent academic studies on Picasso’s work, stature and sociocultural context are presented and debated.
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.

CALL FOR PAPERS
History Acts 11 - Environment
Tuesday 17 April 2018 18:00 to 20:00
MAL G16, Birkbeck College, Malet St, London
An opportunity for historians with an interest in environmental issues to engage with activists.
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?
