Call for Papers: International Networks of Women’s Activism and Mobility in the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy and the Successor States 1848–1945

The workshop will take place on 11–12 November, 2024 in the Collegium Hungaricum Wien

This call for papers aims to promote scholarly collaboration, resulting in a large-scale international research project on women’s activism in the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy and the successor states between 1848 and 1945. The primary aim of the planned project is to reconstruct the history and the international network of contacts of Austrian-German, Hungarian, Slovakian, Czech and Moravian, Polish, Italian, Slovenian, Croatian, Serbian, Ruthenian, and Romanian women’s associations of different profiles as well as to study the activism of their leaders through a longer period of time and over different political regimes. The territory of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy would be considered as a transnational laboratory. Thus, within the frames of this workshop, we aim to provide a forum for conversation and to connect researchers to facilitate closer cooperation and further research in this field.
