Special Issue call for papers: Russian Girl’s Studies: Agenda and Prospects (Girlhood Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal)

Olga Zdravomyslova and Elena Iarskaia – Smirnova will be guest-editing this themed issue and will contribute an introductory overview of Russian research on girls and girlhood.
Deadline: January 15, 2014

Girls born in the late 90’s – early 2000’s are fast entering into the social life in Russia. In contrast with previous generations of girls this is really new, postsoviet generation – the generation of the Internet, social networks and global mass culture. They speak in a different voice, raise new issues and seek to get answers to them. Today’s Russian society experiencing an evident cultural and political conflict between conservatives and modernists is increasingly concerned about the ways girls move into adulthood and sometimes falls into moral panic. Public discourse represented in mass media and Internet demonstrates an over-sensitive or even aggressive reaction to girls’ unexpected advocacy or other offbeat patterns of behavior. However till now this is not adequately reflected in the academic debates. Despite the fact that gender studies in Russia emerged in the early 1990s and have already become a multidisciplinary research area, Girlhood studies have always been fragmented and dispersed in them: girls are still very rarely seen by Russian researchers as a separate and peculiar age and gender group. It can be safely said that girlhood studies have not grown beyond the boundaries of traditional descriptive approaches whereby girlhood is viewed as a closed, undeveloped world, a “pre-life”. It’s as if girls are denied the right to reflect or act.

In Russia the academic discussion about Girlhood Studies has been initiated through the international cooperation of International Foundation for Socio-Economic and Political Studies (The Gorbachev Foundation), the Heinrich Böll Foundation, Girlhood Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal and The Journal of Social Policy Studies (Russia). We consider Girlhood Studies as an innovative theoretical approach and significant sphere of international interdisciplinary dialogue in relation to girlhood. Such a dialogue could expand the vision that has taken shape in gender studies/women studies as well as influence on public debate about girls which are becoming more visible and challenging in modern culture. We believe that this special issue of GHS Journal will help to open a new area of research and public discussion in today’s Russia. We invite scholars from all academic disciplines working on various subjects within Russian Girls’ Studies , Gender Studies and Women Studies to take part in a special issue.

Themes which seem of particular interest include, but are by no means limited to:
• Experiencing transformation: Russian girls of various ages and different generations through the lens of statistics and sociology
• Rethinking femininities: girl culture in contemporary Russia
• Girl’s experience and its interpretation by the girls: how has gender, class, locality and
• ethnicity intertwined in these interpretations
• Challenges and risks that girls in Russia facing today

Журнал “Форум новейшей восточноевропейской истории и культуры” приглашает к сотрудничеству авторов и переводчиков. Журнал издается на русском языке; рукописи могут подаваться как на русском, так и на английском, немецком, украинском языках с последующим переводом на русский. С подробным приглашением к сотрудничеству можно ознакомиться здесь.
Журнал, издание которого мы начали в 2004 году, тесно связан с выходящим с 1997 года журналом «Forum für osteuropäische Ideen- und Zeitgeschichte». «Форум», издаваемый кафедрой Новейшей истории Центральной и Восточной Европы Католического Университета г. Айхштетт (ФРГ) совместно с Институтом Восточноевропейских исследований, занимается в первую очередь научным анализом коммунистического прошлого восточноевропейских стран. Учитывая огромное количество документов, в последнее время ставших доступными для исследователей, можно сказать, что такой анализ – дело многих десятилетий. Наш журнал стремится внести в него свой, пусть небольшой, вклад. «Форум» задуман как своего рода мост – причем во многих смыслах сразу. Он в равной мере открыт как для западных, так и для восточноевропейских ученых и надеется таким образом поспособствовать преодолению во многом все еще существующей противоположности между Востоком и Западом. Публикуя статьи восточноевропейских ученых, мы стремимся облегчить западному читателю знакомство с научными дискуссиями, идущими в настоящее время на востоке Европы. Вместе с тем «Форум» предоставляет восточноевропейским ученым возможность более активно включиться в западноевропейские дебаты на такие темы, как «коммунизм», «тоталитаризм» и т.д. От наших западных авторов мы, с другой стороны, ожидаем исчерпывающего изложения состояния западных дискуссий на релевантные для «Форума» темы. «Форум» задуман, однако, не только как мост между Востоком и Западом, но и как мост между различными дисциплинами. Научный анализ новейшей истории бывших коммунистических государств тесно связан с дискуссией об особенностях исторического и культурного развития как Восточной Европы в целом, так и отдельных восточноевропейских стран. Наряду с историками в этой дискуссии принимают участие философы, политологи, правоведы, экономисты и т.д. На обсуждаемые при этом вопросы не дает исчерпывающего ответа ни одна из этих дисциплин в отрыве от прочих. Не в последнюю очередь поэтому в “Форуме” выступают представители всех вышеназванных наук.


Laboratorium. Журнал социальных исследований приглашает авторов к подаче рукописей для публикации. Laboratorium – двуязычный рецензируемый журнал свободного доступа, публикующий тексты на русском и английском языках. Журнал издается в Санкт-Петербурге при поддержке Центра независимых социологических исследований (ЦНСИ). Laboratorium предлагает исследователям из России и других стран международную площадку для публикации результатов эмпирической работы. Журнал главным образом сфокусирован на исторической и сравнительной социологии, культурных исследованиях, этнографии. Редакцией также приветствуются тексты из смежных дисциплин, включающих антропологию, социальную географию, социолингвистику и социальную историю. Основное требование к текстам, поданным для публикации в Laboratorium – это должны быть оригинальные статьи, основанные на результатах эмпирических исследований. Журнал выходит три раза в год в печатной и электронной версиях. Журнал не устанавливает плату за публикацию. Информацию о журнале, архив прошлых номеров, а также руководства по подготовке рукописей к подаче, можно найти на сайте журнала. С вопросами о журнале и порядке подачи статей обращаться к шеф-редактору журнала Анне Исаковой (aisakova@soclabo.org).


Call for papers for ASPASIA 9: Rethinking Empire from Eastern Europe
Deadline: September 15, 2013
The ASPASIA Editors invite submissions on the theme of gender and empire in Eastern Europe for ASPASIA vol. 9, with Susan Zimmermann (CEU) as guest-editor. Gendered imperialism within Eastern Europe has received little attention from scholars. We hope this theme section will address this omission and inspire exciting new perspectives on gender and empire in Eastern Europe. We see several particular lacunae in the existing literature. First, while scholars have investigated the entanglement of nation, nationalism, nation-building and gender in Eastern Europe, there is hardly any research on how actors identifying with dominant communities have silently or visibly related to gender, in view of their own and other communities. Second, integrative research into gendered imperialism has been rare in relation to both competing and parallel imperialisms within the region, as well as regarding the consequences of the secondary global status of Eastern European Empires for rethinking empire from Eastern Europe. Third, while there has been an interest in counter-hegemonic intellectual (populist, socialist, “third-worldist” …) traditions in East European history, this research has not focused on the gendered dimensions of these intellectual traditions nor on the politics positively related to these intellectual traditions. The history of state-socialist thinking and politics of course forms one important exception, although also in this case the “anti-imperial” dimension of the related gender project has been rather neglected. Fourth, post-empire has more often than not been investigated in terms of national histories or unspecified “entangled” national histories, with ongoing imperial relationships exiled into “context” or altogether absent. Hence, another research lacuna is the gender of post-empire political settings in both national and imperial, and more recently unequally globalized configurations.
Thinking gender into these and other dimensions of the history and legacies, the continuities and transformations of, as well as challenges to empire, will be an important contribution to the ongoing endeavor to re-thisnk the gendered history of Eastern Europe into more critical perspectives on global history. Submissions of up to 8,000 words (including notes) can be sent to Francisca de Haan ( Aspasia Editor-in-Chief) at dehaanf@ceu.hu or to Melissa Feinberg at mfeinberg@history.rutgers.edu. For more information, please write to one of the editors or visit Journals.berghahnbooks.com , where you can also download the ASPASIA Guidelines for Authors.
