Revolutions and Revolutionaries: a Gender Perspective
West Croatian History Journal
Deadline : 01/05/2017
The Journal is undergoing the change of its name to the Adriatic Journal of
History (Jadranski časopis za povijest) to incorporate more clearly its main
area of interest, the Adriatic, but will continue its tradition to promote a
multi-disciplinary approach towards the history of a larger and fluid Adriatic
area, welcoming contributions on all Central European, South-eastern European
and Mediterranean societies,
people and cultures.
The West Croatian History Journal (Časopis za povijest Zapadne Hrvatske) –
WCHJ is a publication of the Department of History of the University of
Rijeka, available in both print and online version via Portal of scientific journals
of Croatia (see: http://hrcak.srce.hr/ cpzh?lang=en). The WCHJ offers the
possibility of publishing scientific articles in Croatian, English, Italian
and Slovenian languages. All articles will firstly be reviewed and accepted by the
editorial board and afterwards will be reviewed according to the double blind
peer review system.
For its eleventh edition the Journal is soliciting papers for a Special
Interdisciplinary issue on revolutions and the role of revolutionaries
throughout different time periods, with a specific focus on gender.
Thirty years ago Blaženka Despot published Žensko pitanje i socijalističko
samoupravljanje, a crucial work which discussed the role of women in the
socialist activism and system, and twenty years have passed from the
collection by Dunja Rihtman Auguštin of the work by Lidija Sklevicky (Konji, žene,
ratovi), who analyzed the work of revolutionary women in the Yugoslav partisan
and post-war organization Antifašistička fronta žena (AFŽ), but also
discussed active revolutionaries of the area we are interested on, such as
German Rosa Luxemburg and Istrian irredentist and then communist and early
antifascist teacher Giuseppina Martinuzzi.
Socialist Yugoslavia, 20th century revolutions and political activism are
presently scrutinized and discussed by various scholars in historical and
other human and social sciences, and some of them directly address gender issues.
We believe that the Adriatic, Yugoslav, Central European and Balkan past
revolutionaries and activists should be further discussed, especially from a
renovated gender perspective. For a start, from the narrower Adriatic angle,
we would welcome new research on women’s role in revolutionary circumstances in
the Adriatic area, as for example in the 1921 antifascist rebellion of the
“Republic of Labin/Albona” or in other revolutionary events beyond the
narrow Adriatic, from the Danubian and Balkan to Central-European and
Mediterranean settings, and also beyond the 20th century revolutionary events
and practices, in order to consider a wide historical range of cases, even
from much earlier times.
Moreover, a wider gender perspective can also help us discuss the role of men,
of masculinities and of different forms of sexual orientations and identities
in revolutionary processes, practices and theories. In addition, we welcome
contributions examining the legacy of revolutionaries and the policies and
practices of memorialization of activists. That would mean to examine whether
and how gender played a role in the ritualization, commemoration or absence
of memorialization of specific revolutionary figures and events. We are not
interested only in 20th and modern historical cases, but we welcome proposals
and articles on other time periods.
The Journal also welcomes other forms of contributions, such as comments,
discussions, book and journal reviews, news, exhibition catalogues, conference
and workshop reports, etc.
Proposal should be sent to the editorial board by March 15th 2017.
Deadline for paper submission: May 1st 2017.
