CfP: Craft History Workshop: A works-in-progress seminar for interdisciplinary histories of making

Craft History Workshop: Call for Papers (deadline July 31, 2021) https://crafthistoryworkshop.com/ This seminar series invites new considerations of craft in an expanded historical and methodological field. Recent art-historical scholarship on craft tends to emphasize the mechanisms and markets of contemporary art, or positions craft as a phenomenon arising specifically through the dialectics of industrial modernity. But this is not the only way we can define and frame craft. Even during the rise of the mass-produced modern world, craft remained integrated in industrial capitalism, not as its “other” but (as Raphael Samuel famously showed) part of its development and operation. Nor has modernity been the only driver of change: craft’s rich pre- and early-modern transformations deserve explicit attention as well. Furthermore, craft has an ongoing present beyond the specific frame of Western affluence; in the global South and in marginalized communities within the global North, craft’

Call for Chapters: Energy Justice - Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation (Palgrave Macmillan)

There is strong scientific evidence that human-induced climate change is a real threat and human activity is the main cause of this urgent problem; despite the existing evidence, fossil fuel consumption continues to rise, as well as global energy demand—under normal circumstances.  However, the COVID-19 crisis changed this scenario having an immediate impact on health, wellbeing, energy use, and CO 2  emissions. Energy justice calls for a moral analysis of all current energy systems from legal, political, and philosophical perspectives. The energy law framework is developing rapidly in the U.S. and worldwide, especially environmental law and natural resources law (Salter et al. 2018). Energy policy systems are often detached from energy justice and ethics concepts (Jenkins et al. 2018). Energy justice is a relatively new concept as compared to environmental justice; first and foremost, energy justice is characterized as a certain tool for the policymaking process that seeks to identify

The notion of noise has provided a pithy concept for information theory and computa

CfP for workshop: ‘Researching and Writing Histories of Sexual Violence: Methodological Challenges and Ethical Complexities’

Researching and Writing Histories of Sexual Violence: Methodological Challenges and Ethical Complexities Research into sexual violence…is not lightly undertaken...The project is necessarily and unavoidably political. An attempt at dispassionate, discrete authorship runs the risk of becoming voyeuristic and exploitative. Research on sexual violence should be empowering, for those involved in its writing(s) and reading(s). It therefore demands methodologies devised as if to be similarly empowering to the women and children disclosed in the written sources . ( Shani D’Cruze, ‘Approaching the History of Rape and Sexual Violence: Notes Towards Research,’  Women’s History Review  1:3 (1992): 377.)   These words, written almost thirty years ago by Shani D’Cruze (who sadly passed away earlier this year), remain an important provocation for historians of sexual and gender-based violence. D’Cruze was a leading figure amongst a generation of historians who, inspired by the women’s liberation move
