The project examines for the first time in a comparative way aspects of
gender history regarding nation building in Italy and Germany. 

A particular focus will be on the relationship between Jewish
emancipation and women's emancipation, which has been rather neglected
in relevant research, the protagonists of the women's emancipation
movements, as well as the interconnection between nation, family, and
female identities.

The period in question is the "long" Nineteenth Century, while the main
focus will be on the years between 1848 and the First World War. 

The network of scholars has an international and interdisciplinary
character, combining history of gender, family and discourse with
biographical research, sociological and pedagogical methods. The
research team integrates deliberately Jewish history into general
history, in order to further exchange between projects that are still
rather distanced from each other. 

Insights into the relationship between national identities and
transnational influences are to be gained by examining women's and
family networks, as well as the international orientation of the German
and the Italian women's emancipation movements.  

The concrete objective of the network is the organization of an
international conference at the German Historical Institute in Rome in
autumn 2015, and the publication of the contributions in an edited
volume in English. A concluding workshop will take place in April 2016
in Munich. 

We are seeking three more members for the working group that will fully
participate in our activities and meetings in Munich and Rome between
December 2014 and November 2016. 

We invite applications from doctoral students as well as researchers on
a post-doctoral level with a focus on history, Jewish studies,
sociology, or educational science. Papers should engage with one or
several of the following themes, considering the particular focus on
Italy and Germany in a European context:

- Gender and nation/ Family and nation in the "long" 19th Century 
- Women's emancipation movements until 1918
- Women and the First World War  
- Transnational networks between Jewish and non-Jewish women
- Antisemitism in national/ transnational women's networks and
- Relationships between catholic, protestant and/or Jewish women 
- Jewish as well as non-Jewish family histories and family biographies
in the "long" Nineteenth Century
- Biographies of female activists 
- Transfer of educational theories and institutions (Fröbel, Montessori

The first workshop will be hosted by the Ludwig-Maximilians-University
Munich in association with the Wissenschaftliche Arbeitsgemeinschaft des
Leo Baeck Instituts, and convened by Ruth Nattermann (LMU Munich,
Department of 19th and 20th Century European History) and Stefanie
Schüler-Springorum (TU Berlin, Zentrum für Antisemitismusforschung).

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 14 November 2014, and
all applicants will be contacted by 31 December 2014. 

Submissions should include the name and institutional affiliation of the
applicant, a CV, and an abstract for a proposed individual project/
