GSA Seminar: Sexuality and Law in German-Speaking Europe
Martin Lücke, Veronika Springmann and Richard Wetzel are organizing this seminar as part of the series of “GSA seminars” at the 44th Annual Conference of the German Studies Association, in Washington DC, October 1-4, 2020.
Please feel invited to hand in your applications, in both, German or English until the 27th of January 2020. Any further informations are given in the pdf attached below.
During the winter semester 18/19 we offered the seminar “Law and Sexuality in a global context in the 19th and 20th century”. Instead of seminar presentations the students had the opportunity to write an entry for this blog or to be part of a student conference. We are proud to present some of the entries here on the blog and start with a first contribution by Felicitas Platz on the German Disability Rights Movement and the abortion discourse.
Als Kooperationspartner*in von Sebastian Bischoff, Julia König und Dagmar Lieske richten wir am 17.5. und 18.5.2019 das Gründungstreffen des Arbeitskreises Sexualitäten in der Geschichte aus.
Diskutiert werden aktuelle Forschungsansätze zur Geschichte der Sexualitäten mit dem Ziel das Thema innerhalb der deutschen geistes- kultur- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Forschung und Lehre stärker zu repräsentieren.
During the last semester we offered the seminar “Law and Sexuality in a global context in the 19th and 20th century”. Instead of seminar presentations the students had the opportunity to be part of a student conference or to write an entry for this blog. On February 13th 2019, we want to invite you to join the conference. It will take place at the Seminarzentrum of the Freie Universität Berlin. The blog entries will be published during the upcoming weeks.
