CFP: MASCULINITIES IN RUSSIA 19-23 June 2003
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign/Summer Research Laboratory
Papers are invited for an interdisciplinary conference that will explore questions of masculinity in Russia. This conference seeks to support contributions by Russian scholars to the emerging field of Masculinity Studies. In particular, we are interested in looking at masculinity/maleness as a gender-specific form of social, national, economic, military, or aesthetic practice.
We especially invite papers that attempt to situate specific articulations of masculinity in Russia within a larger historical, theoretical or geographical framework.
Topics for "Masculinities in Russia" may include, but are not limited to:
Masculine Identities (intersections with race, class, sexual identities)
Discursive Production of Masculinity/Masculine Performance
Politics and Masculinity
Homosociability, Homosexuality and Masculinity
"Masculinities in Russia" will be held as part of the annual Summer Research Laboratory on Russia and Eastern Europe at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Workshop participants are encouraged to apply to the Summer Research Lab for free university housing which may be extended beyond the conference dates. (For further information on housing allowances and the Summer Research Lab, visit the website listed.) Participants will have afternoons free to conduct research in the largest Slavic library West of Washington, D.C.
Interested scholars may submit paper proposals of no more than 500 words and a curriculum vitae by 15 January 2003 to:
