Abstract

Through the various essays that compose it, the volume gives voice to subjective experiences and perceptions of men and women involved in military conflicts between the Risorgimento period and the Great War: historical phases characterized by deep elements of continuity regarding the symbolic construction of national identity, but also by equally strong watersheds. The comparison between different contexts is valuable in investigating the relationship between gender, nation, and war. Starting from a stereotype that is still strong, though it has been challenged by recent research − associating women with the desire for peace and men at the will of competition and conquest −, the volume inquired whether a specific "gender" perception of wars emerged from the texts analyzed, and to what extent these conflicts have prodded crisis and transformation in the relations between women and men. In the writings of fighters analyzed in the book − Bourbonists and Garibaldians on the Risorgimento scene, British and Italian volunteers in the First World War − "fighting the war" assumes very different meanings in relation to the side that was chosen and to the individual personality; however, it always represents a crucial moment of confrontation with dominant models of virility. The writings of Louise Colet − a passionate supporter of the Italian cause −, the images of "angels" and "fury" emerging from the male memories of the Risorgimento, alongside writings of so many women mobilized in 1914-18 − from Vera Brittain to Italian irredentists and nationalists, to the feminist minority who remained faithful to pacifist internationalism − remind us that in the nineteenth century, as in the terrible conflict that opens the "age of extremes", the war transformed profoundly, in addition to the lives of men called cannot, in fact, ignore the historical dimension that needs to inform any study that is to be done today on these works.

Abstract

In this volume, connections between education, power and economy are discussed and problematized from a gender-theoretical perspective. In view of the observed change of systems in politics, science, culture and the social sphere, this thematic field is discussed in various contributions from new theoretical perspectives. The volume contains contributions on the philosophy of education as well as historical and sociological studies that systematically examine one or more facets of these interrelationships from a gender-theoretical perspective.

Abstract

Die Rede von der »Feminisierung der Kultur« beherrschte um 1900 die Wissenscodes von Männlichkeiten und Modernisierung. Interdisziplinär geht dieser Band den konträren Diskursen nach, in denen sich die Rhetoriken einer vermeintlichen Krise hegemonialer weißer Männlichkeiten ausbildeten. Betrachtet werden soziokulturelle, ästhetische und politische Felder sowie auch die Kanonisierung und Dekanonisierung von Wissenschaften. Visionen jüdischer Effeminierung stehen neben solchen des Hypervirilen, wissenschaftliche und poetologische Figuren des Dritten neben rassistischen Maskeraden und technischen Utopien.

Abstract

Mit dem practical turn in der Wissenschaftsforschung avancierte das Experiment zu einem vielbeachteten Gegenstand historischer und wissenssoziologischer Untersuchungen. Eines wurde bislang jedoch weitestgehend ausgeblendet: der medizinische Menschenversuch. Dieses Buch widmet sich der Experimentalisierung des Menschen, indem es anhand der Syphilisforschung nachzeichnet, wie der Frauenkörper zu dem »Ding« (Hans Jonas) des Experiments wurde: Welche politischen Leitideen, welche gesellschaftlichen Projekte, welche literarischen Phantasien manifestierten sich in den Menschenlaboratorien des 19. Jahrhunderts?
