Disarming Women: Women’s Reflection and the Anti-Nuclear Movement from 1945 to the Present Day
The journal DEP, Deportate, Esuli, Profughe (Deportees, Exiles, Refugees) is organising an international conference on the topic of feminist reflection and the anti-nuclear and geoengineering movement on 22-23 November 2018 in Venice.
The conference is divided into two strands. The first strand will focus on the theme of the formation of the women’s anti-nuclear movements and sets out to examine the activists’ motivations in different countries to understand a collective mood, to explore decision-making mechanisms, and to reconstruct methods of dissemination of the aims, including songs, theatrical representations, and fictional works. The second strand will centre on the underlying philosophy of tactics and strategies, on the theoretical reflection that inspired these movements.
The deadline for abstract submission is 7 July 2018. More information.
