CFP: Intergenerational Trauma in Refuge Communities

Deadline: January 31, 2022

Call for Chapter Proposals
Intergenerational Trauma in Refugee Communities

This book proposes to explore intergenerational/generational trauma, or ways in which trauma experienced by one generation affects the well-being of future generations, among refugee communities displaced throughout the world. The book will focus on legacy of trauma and how historical, cultural, and economic trauma affect survivors’ future generations. While trauma research literature documents single-episode effects of trauma, the long-term and intergenerational effects of traumatic experiences across refugee communities and cultural contexts is still a gap in the literature. This book seeks to include patterns and findings across disciplines, cultural contexts, and methodologies addressing how transmission of trauma occurs in specific refugee communities.

CFA: Time, Objectified: Soviet Temporalities and Material Culture

Deadline: January 31, 2022

Edited by Julie Deschepper, Antony Kalashnikov, and Federica Rossi

In what ways were Soviet temporalities unique, from a global perspective? How can studies of Soviet material culture provide a vantage point from which to address this question?

Time is hardly a new object of research in the humanities and social sciences.  The last few decades have seen landmark works on the changing conceptualizations and experiences of time, written from the disciplinary standpoints of, among others, history (Hartog, Koselleck, Tamm), sociology (Bauman, Rosa, Zerubavel), philosophy (Gumbrecht, Lübbe, Osborne) and literary studies (Assmann, Berman). These studies have identified and explored multiple temporalities: the ways in which time is constructed, produced, instrumentalized, and negotiated by individuals and collectives, themselves embedded in time. As in the current animated discussion of modern and postmodern temporal orders, these investigations have been rooted in a Eurocentric framework.
