CALL FOR PAPERS : "Thinking Sex after the Great War" - International conference, Brussels, 17-19 October 2018

On the joint initiative of Henk de Smaele (University of Antwerp) and the AVG-Carhif, an international conference entitled « Thinking Sex after the Great War » will be held end 2018 in Brussels. This conference aspires to evaluate the impact of the First World War on the representations and discourses on gender and sexuality. The main objective is to consider the way intellectuals, philosophers, sociologists, doctors, psychologists or academics have experienced the war, and the way this experience has influenced their own ideas on the relations between the sexes. Via these trajectories of intellectuals, an evaluation will be made as to how dominant or minority discourses were able to be strengthened, changed or emerged as a result of the war.

Deadline to send in a resume (400 words): 15 December 2017
