The journal “Genesis” invites to present contributions for the monographic number Feminisms in the Mediterranean. This is an outcome of the workshop held in Bologna the 14 of December 2011, “Feminisms in the Mediterranean”, which is part of the “Permanent Workshop on Global Feminisms”, promoted in collaboration by SIS (Italian Society of Women Historians) and SiSSCo (Society for the Study of Contemporary History). The aim is to consider historiographical approaches, categories, political strategies, with particular reference to the different Mediterranean cultural realities. Insofar, we are taking into consideration Europe, North Africa, the Balkans, the Middle East, in the modern and contemporary age. We encourage contributions, preferably through case studies, related, but not limited to:
- Theories of feminism: methodological terminological and translation issues
- Feminist historiographies
- History of feminist movements
- Women’s leadership
- Feminisms and nationalisms
- Feminisms and revolutions
- Intergenerational relationships
- Feminism in the literature and arts
