Personen im Gespräch in einem Seminarraum.

Veronika Settele and Lisa Hellriegel currently invite abstracts for the workshop "Beyond Norms and Categories: Towards a History of Sexual Practices, 1850-1960," which will be held at the University of Bremen on February 20 and 21, 2024. The goal of the conference is to discuss the century before the so-called "sexual revolution" – without seeing this period as a prehistory – and to pay special attention to the history of social practices rather than the history of sexual norms. The workshop is the first event of the focus project "Behind the Norm: Practices of Sexuality between Secularization and Scientification, 1848-1930", led by Veronika Settele.

Our Call for Papers is open until October 31, 2023. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the fields of social, religious, scientific, colonial, and gender history. Submissions (300-500 words, English or German) can be sent to veronika.setteleprotect me ?!uni-bremenprotect me ?!.de. The workshop will be followed by a publication in the form of a special issue in a peer-reviewed journal.
