Gender and '68 in Comparative Perspective.
Abstract and cv : September 1, 2000
Article Draft:: June 15, 2001
Through the lens of gender, this volume invokes "68" to then decenter
nostalgic views of privileged student movements at metropoles like Paris,
Chicago, and Berekely by locating these movements in relation to struggles
around race, imperialism, revolution, colonialism, labor, sexuality, and
militarism. Thus, the volume aligns stresses on the center with other
struggles of the era. Foregrounding the gendered dynamics of these
struggles, the volume promises to challenge the snapshots of '68 encoded in
official memory, placing that moment in a more cosmopolitan context.
We welcome articles (reviewed until June 2001: approx. 30 pgs with endnotes
and bibliography) that deal with economic shifts, social contestations,
cultural reconfigurations, and political struggles around citizenship and
nation-state formation in the period from the mid-1960s through the early
1970s. We especially welcome contributions on Prague, Japan, the
Netherlands, Mexico, Paris, Chicago, and Berkeley, as well as other sites
whose location as periphery or province has usually excluded them from the
story of '68, especially places in Africa, South Asia, and Latin America.
Abstracts (reviewed until Sept. 2000) should outline historical sources and
methodology as well as theoretical framework and should be accompanied by a
1 paragraph professional bio in addition to the cv.
