März 2003, Universität Bremen, Gebäude SFGWie funktionieren soziokulturelle Repräsentationen? Wie werden sie in Bewegung gesetzt?Repräsentation verweist auf den gesamten Komplex der Realitätskonstitution, der Anordnungsoziokultureller Wirklichkeiten. In diesem Begriff verknüpfen sich Konzepte etwa der Stellvertretungmit solchen der visuellen oder textuellen Darstellung. Seine gesellschaftspolitische und erkenntnistheoretischeRelevanz bildet den Ausgangspunkt dieser interdisziplinären und sich imSchnittfeld wissenschaftlicher und politischer Anliegen bewegenden Tagung.Aus kultur- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Perspektiven sollen die wirkmächtigen Potentiale vonRepräsentation bezogen auf Konzeptionen von Leit- und Selbstbildern diskutiert werden. Damitist ein Spannungsfeld zwischen einer kollektiven, strukturellen Ebene und jener der Akteurinnenund Akteure markiert. Wie kommen gesellschaftliche Leitbilder, z.B. von Familie oder Nation, imWechselspiel mit Selbstbildern und Identitätskonstruktionen zur Wirkung? Auf welche Weisewerden diese Bilder tradiert und aktualisiert, in welche Machtverhältnisse sind sie eingespannt?Ebenso wie Prozesse ihrer Re/Produktion sind dabei auch die Effekte soziokultureller Ideale vonInteresse: In welchen Figuren verkörpern sie sich? Welche Ausschlüsse oder Verletzungen ergebensich, was wird in ihnen nicht repräsentiert?Wenn sich Leit- und Selbstbilder nicht widerspruchsfrei und abschließend konstituieren, stelltsich zudem die Frage nach den Optionen, die eine Erweiterung oder Umgestaltung traditionellerRepräsentations-ordnungen erwirken oder eine Reflexion des darin Nicht-Repräsentierten beinhaltenkönnen: An welchen Punkten kommt es zu einer Außerkraftsetzung der leitenden Bilderund welche Transformationsprozesse sind davon ausgehend denkbar?Programm (Ausschnitte)Freitag, 28.

Confirmed participants include Lisa Duggan (NewYork University), Judith Halberstam (University of California, San Diego), Karma Lochrie (IndianaUniversity), Mandy Merck (Royal Holloway, London), Adrian Rifkin (Middlesex University),Alan Sinfield (University of Sussex) and Michael Warner (Rutgers).‘Queer Matters’ has been conceived with the aim of interrogating the Anglo-American divide inqueer work (both in the academy and beyond), as well as providing a forum for international4


exchange on topics related to queer practices of all kinds. We envisage the event as an opportunityto take stock of the place of queer in contemporary British and American culture, toconsider the differing discourses of queerness that arise in particular locales, and to address thetheoretical and political issues that arise from such inquiries. ‘Queer Matters’ will be organizedacross three days and engage with the following topics and questions:--QUEER THEORIES: What are the distinctive elements of British and American queer theories?What are their genealogies? Is queer theory limited by its roots in and links to specifically Anglo-Americancritical practice? How can ‘queer theory’ be made in intellectual climates thatincreasingly favour the local and particular over the universal and general?--QUEER HISTORIES: What have been the values and uses of queer histories? How do intellectualinquiries into the past contribute to current debates in queer studies and politics? Howhave theories of modernity structured queer studies in Anglo-American contexts? Does queertheory continue to offer a model for rethinking history and historiography?--QUEER CULTURES: What has been the impact of queer cultural practice over the past decade?What is the relationship between culture and politics, or art and activism, in queercontexts? How and where do the emancipatory components of queer cultural studies endure?How do concepts of ‘queer theory’ and ‘queer culture’ resonate in a global context?We invite proposals for complete sessions, round tables and individual presentations that addressthese ideas and others, in a spirit of conversation and dialogue. For details of how tosubmit a proposal, please consult the Queer Matters website athttp://www.queermatters.org/proposal.html, email queermatters@yahoo.co.uk or write toQueer Matters, c/o English Department, King’s College London, Strand, London, WC2R 2LS, UK.Queer Matters has been organized by John Howard, Bob Mills and Mark Turner at KCL, with theinvolvement of Carolyn Dinshaw at the CSGS at NYU.CALL FOR PAPERS DEADLINE: 31 May 2003.Wear in the word?: (Re)materialising Gendered and Sexualised GeographiesWomen in Geography Study Group session at the RGS/IBG 3-5 th September 2003.Papers which explore space, place, nature or/and environment through the lens of gender andsexuality, as well as those that investigate gender and sexuality through space, place, natureor/and environment are invited for this Women in Geography Study Group session at theRGS/IBG 3-5 th September 2003.This session seeks to explore the textual critique of recent research in cultural geographies,feminism and queer theory through explorations of the materialities of gendered and sexualisedgeographies. The 'cultural turn' in geographies and wider social sciences has been accused ofover emphasising the 'discursive' without recourse to 'materialities'. However, rather than suggestingthese are mutually exclusive or hierarchical, the possible intersections between recenttheorisations and the materialities of gender and sex is the focus of the session. This couldhave a number of different manifestations across the range of practice and theory from discussionsthat investigate empirically everyday 'realities' and the praxis of critical geographies tothose that examine the potentials of the 'textual turn'.Themes could include:• Women's, men's, transgendered/transgendered, lesbian, gay, bisexual, pomosexualor/and heterosexual geographies.• Gendered and sexualised geographies/geometries/spatialities of power.• 'Real life' and geographical theories• Praxis in geographies of gender and sexuality.• The possibilities and problems of postmodern/postcolonial/poststructural feminism,queer theory, cultural geographies, non-representational theory• The discipline, philosophy and practice of geographies through the lens of gendersand sexualities.5


• Feminist/queer methodologiesOther papers that broadly fit within the remit of the session will be considered. It is envisagedthat the session will consist of both theoretical and empirical papers across the breadth of geography.Interdisciplinary research is also encouraged.Abstracts of approximately 200 words can be sent to Kath Browne by 25 th February 2003.

A queer studiesconference at Bielsko-Biala, Poland, 8-11 June 2003The Parameters of Desire conference will try to trace the complex circuits of (queer) desire,with special emphasis on the dialectic of public and private spaces. Not only do we intend toproblematize the very definition of “the public” versus “the private,” but also to investigate theways in which “public” and “private” spaces influence the production of desire, as well as theways in which (queer) desire can become a tool in political, social or cultural contestation.More specifically, we would like to concentrate on such issues as: claiming the public space /defending the private space; public space and the heterosexual norm; language and the heterosexualnorm; public performance of gender; the aesthetics of camp; forms and strategies ofpublic participationThe proposed conference will be fourth in a series of queer and gender studies conferencesthat have been organized since 2000. A bilingual selection of papers from the past two conferences(A Queer Mixture: Gender Perspectives on Minority Sexual Identites) was published inSeptember 2002.

Gender, Technology and Development has scheduled a special issue on 'Gender in the InformationSociety' for publication in early 2004. It is a well known fact that unequal power relations inour societies contribute to differential access, control and participation for women and men inthe Information Society. Gender, Technology and Development is interested in exploring theways in which these power/gender relations carry into the new world. We look forward to articlesthat address the key issues and identify the problems and challenges of the global informationsociety. The different facets of the information society - economic, social, cultural, andtechnological and policy concerns- may be subjected to intense scrutiny through the genderlens to assess the gendered and other social impacts in sustainable rural and urban development,employment and poverty alleviation, education, human rights, access and control overthe benefits of ICT technology, and other areas that deserve study. Buzzwords such as e-governance, e-commerce, knowledge society/economy and e-development are especially deservingof gender (class and ethnicity) analysis. Case studies of successful and not-sosuccessfulattempts to empower the disenfranchised, especially women, through the use ofICTs are also welcome.Papers may range from 5-8,000 words and must be based on original research. Articles basedon field-based research are preferred. While the global South is the preferred focus of our journal,we wish to include articles that encompass a global perspective including North-Southdialogue.

An interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary journal, it has been particularly concernedwith the multicultural experience of women in the American West. Now Frontiers is moving toArizona State University where it will acquire new editors, Susan Gray and Gayle Gullett. In ArizonaFrontiers will continue exploring topics in women's studies and will examine new kinds ofborder crossings. The new Frontiers will both embrace the West and move beyond nationalboundaries; it will look at the relationships among place, region, and topics of longstandingconcern to feminist scholars-gender, race, ethnicity, class, and sexual orientation. For a specialissue to inaugurate Frontier's new geographical and intellectual location, the editors call forscholarly and creative works on gender, place, and politics. We envision papers that range fromthe impact of place upon the gender dynamics of local politics to those that ask questions abouthow the growth of global politics has affected gender.

ChangingPatterns in a Global Context. Zed Books, 256 pp. Paperback, ISBN: 1842770314, $25http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1842770314/centerforimmigraPUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION: Patterns of prostitution, like so much else in our increasingly interconnectedworld, are changing radically, as the investigations in this volume dramatically show.The question of migrant prostitutes in the West may be much debated, but it is little researched.This collection makes a radical break with the current media focus on humantrafficking and the old habit of simply blaming the victim. What emerges is a nuanced and empiricallygrounded portrait of the complexities of prostitution across national boundaries today.As befits a subject with such huge consequences for the lives of people, this volume includespersonal testimony alongside sociological investigation. Testimony comes from both prostitutesand clients. Men are dealt with as customers; as creators of dominant European notions ofsexuality, race and prostitution; and as prostitutes themselves selling services to women tourists.The experiences of women who migrate to the West and work there as prostitutes aresensitively described. It becomes clear that their lives and aspirations are much more complicatedthan is usually assumed, and that easy generalizations about trafficking and forced labourdo not always hold up. Of particular interest are the volume's explorations of innovative newpolicies being pioneered in the Netherlands and Sweden as well as the impact of rising antiimmigrantfeeling. The authors include both scholars and activists. It is their hope that thisbook will raise the level of debate and contribute to a more humane approach.Wieder erhältlich: Handbuch Gender Mainstreaming in der Regionalentwicklung in2.

Developmentstudies has reached an impasse, both in its theoretical paradigms and its practicalprescriptions. Too economistic, too little focused on the daily lives of women, and devoid of vision,the field needs a radical imaginative overhaul. The contributors to this book, who work atthe intersection of cultural studies, feminist studies, and critical development studies, articulatea new theoretical framework that they call Women, Culture and Development. They apply it toa range of issues and, through a series of shorter think pieces, present their ideas for thefuture. Kum-Kum Bhavnani and John Foran are professors of sociology at the University of Californiaat Santa Barbara.

However, emerging critiquessuggest the need to pay more attention to understanding men and masculinities, and toanalysing the social relationships between men and women.This book considers the case for afocus on men in gender and development, including arguments based on equality and socialjustice, the specific gendered vulnerabilities of men, the emergence of a crisis of masculinityand the need to include men in development as partners for strategic change. Incorporatingmen into gender and development requires us to reconsider some of the theories and conceptswhich underlie policies. This book addresses a variety of such concepts and debates includingthe links between modernization, development and gender, whether feminist analytical frameworksare appropriate for incorporating men and their concerns, how useful the concept ofhegemonic masculinity is in understanding different cultural conceptions of manliness, and theneed to find ways of combining concern with micro level and private social relations with an a-nalysis of macro level trends and structures. Chapters in this book draw on experience from avariety of geographical areas and different development projects and processes to analyse menand masculinities and to draw out implications for policy and practice. (…) Other chapters lookat gender relations and masculinities in situations of violence and conflict, the role of the stateand ideologies of nationalism in shaping masculinities, and the interlinking of gender relationswith race and class.
