>"Sexuality and Socialism"
>Session sponsored by the Coalition of Women in German*
>We welcome interdisciplinary investigations of diverse aspects of
>sexuality and socialism. Beginning with August Bebel's public
>support for Magnus Hirschfeld's Wissenschaftlich-Humanitaeres
>Komitee in the 1890s, and socialist feminists' envisioning of Free
>Love in the Weimar years, socialist/communist movements, parties,
>and theorists in Germany have linked sexual practices and identities
>to programs of revolutionary change. Neomarxists since Foucault,
>however, have connected sexuality with discourses of power,
>subjugation, and governmentality.
>Papers might address (but certainly are not limited to) the
>following areas of inquiry:
> * How did socialist visions of sexuality shape the lives especially
> of GDR citizens, including sexual minorities?
> * How did artists and critics link sexual desire and non-traditional
> relationships to a political critique of 'real existing socialism'?
> * To what extent is postmarxist theory today a fellow traveler to
> queer and feminist critiques of globilization?
>Please send 100-word abstracts to both organizers by *February 1, 2005*:
