CfP: Critical Perspectives on the Intersection of Breast Cancer and Academic Identity Abstract

This volume invites scholars who are either navigating breast cancer treatment or have traveled this path in the past. We hope to create a space for you to share how your experiences with breast cancer have touched and transformed your teaching, research, personal, and professional connections within your communities. Through your contributions, we aim to explore these profound impacts with empathy, adopting a feminist, transnational, and intersectional approach. This is an opportunity to reflect on and articulate the deeply personal ways in which breast cancer has intertwined with your academic life and beyond, fostering a compassionate and understanding dialogue rooted in critical, qualitative, and autoethnographic traditions.The primary aim of this volume is to critically explore how narratives and personal experiences related to the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer reshape our perceptions of identity, agency, and community dynamics, particularly focusing on the existing hea

Institución Milà i Fontanals de Investigación en Humanidades (IMF-CSIC, Barcelona) Resumen: La renovación de la historiografía sobre el carlismo de los últimos años bajo el paradigma de la historia de las culturas políticas ha permitido poner en valor la complejidad de una cultura política que tradicionalmente había sido retratada como maniquea y anacrónica. Así, ha podido mostrarse que dicha cultura política experimentó dos fases de renovación caracterizadas por su masificación (1890-1917) y fasc

CfP: Humanitarianism and Southern Europe: New Perspectives in (Re)Thinking the Transitions to Democracy

International Workshop. University of Florence, Department of Social and Political Sciences October 15th and 16th, 2024 This biennium (2024-25) marks the 50th anniversary of the end of authoritarian regimes in Greece, Portugal, and Spain. Their democratization processes have captured the attention of international and political historians, social scientists, and cultural researchers ever since. At the center of the inquiry have been questions related to the various and multifaceted changes ‘democratization’ brought to the public and private sphere, the legacies of anti-dictatorial struggles in forging new ideas of modernization, transitional justice and the evolving memorialization of the period. More recently, research on Southern Europe’s transitions argued for the need to adopt more transnational and comparative perspectives, to include new actors and understudied dimensions, and to expand the chronologies and geographies under study (also including the former Portuguese and Spanish

CfP: (Call for Panelists): Recent Spatial Theory in the History of Science

Please find a call for panelists below for the upcoming History of Science Society (HSS) Annual Conference taking place in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico, 7-10 November 2024. Additional information about HSS and the full CFP can be found here: https://hssonline.org/page/hss2024cfp Proposed Panel: Recent Spatial Theory in the History of Science The ‘spatial turn’ in the history of science demonstrated the importance of space (and place) not merely as a backdrop for thinking through the various histories of science but as a co-producer of scientific knowledge and understanding. Since then, the study of space has been applied to a variety of topics and questions. Yet, the idea that places build people and knowledge as much as knowledge and people build places suggests connections to a range of other theories and approaches that have yet to be explored. This panel invites discussion of the most recent approaches to spatial theory in the history of science and technology. How do scholars understan

Friday 10 May 2024 from 1 – 4.30 PM UK time Zoom (Online) This international conference explores the phenomenological turn to 'first relationships'.

This can involve exploring: the role between the artist as creator and therapist, the creator and collaborator paradigms, social prescribing paradigms and the role of the arts the art as symbol for bodied experience, the divergent phenomenological traditions of the body in its role as artist and responsible. A short abstract and title by 17 March is to be sent to movandcare@gmail.com . Participants are welcome without needing to p
