Call for Papers
Annual Conference for the Austrian Studies Association
May 2-5, 2013
University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
Panel Title: Feminist Literature and Film Gegen den Glauben/Against Belief (Women in German (WiG) Sponsored Session)
This panel will investigate how gendered or feminist perspectives shape, contradict, explore, or circumnavigate various Glaubenssysteme. Against can be read literally or figuratively: It can mean opposed to certain beliefs, but also mean something that comes in contact with or is adjacent vis-à-vis another thing. Some questions to consider would be: How have other forms of protest given women a voice? How do notions of gender inform reactions to, for, or against Glaubensysteme? The central focus of inquiry will be how feminists and gender scholars have engaged with a diverse system of Glaubensysteme.
Max 300 word abstract and 1 paragraph bio sent electronically to both organizers (below). Abstracts due Dec. 15, 2012.
Accepted panelists informed by Dec. 22.
