We Celebrate International Women's Day

March 8th is International Women's Day!

To celebrate it we gathered some of the great research carried out by female BCDSS members as well as by any BCDSS members who published gender-related research in the recent past.

This is meant to be an ongoing project, so do let us know of any further publications or other achievements!

In The Routledge History of Loneliness

Published in The Routledge History of Loneliness

Edited By Katie Barclay, Elaine Chalus, Deborah Simonton.

In this chapter Dr. Jennifer Leetsch interweaves the subject of loneliness with an example of early-19th-century Black life-writing, the slave narrative The History of Mary Prince (1831), the first Black life narrative by a woman published in Britain, at a time of immense social rupture and change effected by anti-slavery and abolitionist politics. Locating the intersections of displacement and community in slavery life-writing across the Black Atlantic, this literary analysis contrasts the many contested communities at work in Prince’s text with the loneliness of her experiences in, through and after slavery. The chapter argues that loneliness, fragmentation and separation are fundamentally part of the slave narrative, just as much as the existence and continual rearticulation of Black community and solidarity. By focusing on loneliness as a condition constitutive of the genre, the chapter excavates the dynamics between the intimate feelings of loneliness, social isolation and systemic alienation as experienced by enslaved people, as well as inconspicuous yet wilful forms of community-building and acts of care that are activated in relation to and articulated through experiences of oppression, dehumanisation and objectification.

Exhibition opening "All they wanted was to study...The Numerus Clausus and the young women"

Showcasing women's fates in black-and-white photography

Together with the Frauenmuseum, we invite you to the opening of the exhibition "All they wanted was to study... The Numerus Clausus and the young women". The photo exhibition highlights young Hungarian Jewish women affected by the so-called Numerus Clausus law of 1920 and explores its impact on women's emancipation and Jewish assimilation.

Marion Gymnich and Béla Bodó will place the exhibition, which was first shown in Budapest in 2021, in the context of the cluster's dependency studies, and explain how it was adopted for the Frauenmuseum in Bonn. Visitors will then be taken on a tour of the exhibition by Judith Szapor, the curator and Associate Professor of History and Classical Studies at McGill University, Montréal.

Eva, who joined the cluster in October, is a research associate in Research Area E: Gender and Intersectionality.

Dear Reader,

To commemorate International Women's Day on March 8th, we plan to keep this website as an ongoing project that showcases gender-related research undertaken by our cluster, along with the academic achievements of our women researchers.

Our aim is to emphasize the significance of gender-focused research within the cluster, while also inspiring and encouraging young women academics by highlighting the success of their peers.

If you wish to participate, please always feel free to reach us out, and provide us with details on any recent publications pertaining to gender, or any notable scientific awards, high-impact publications, etc., by women academics within our cluster.
