The Canadian Committee on Women’s History will be holding a Special Meeting to discuss the 2017 survey results and proposed changes to the Constitution. This meeting will be held prior to the meeting of the Canadian Historical Association in Regina, on May 27, 2018 between 3:30 and 6:00PM (Location TBA).

For several years, our annual general meeting has provided too little time to thoroughly discuss much more than regular business. Therefore, I’m asking that Committee members accommodate a Sunday meeting in their Congress travel plans, if possible. Please try to attend, since the meeting will not be able to conduct business unless we have quorum. I will distribute an agenda via our social media platforms at least seven days prior to the meeting.

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to the CCWH. I look forward to seeing you all there!


Le Comité canadien de l’histoire des femmes tiendra une rencontre extraordinaire ce printemps, afin de discuter des résultats du sondage de 2017 et de proposer des modifications à sa constitution. Cette rencontre aura lieu à Régina, en marge de la Réunion annuelle de la Société historique du Canada,le dimanche 27 mai 2018, entre 15h30 et 18h00, dans un lieu qui reste à déterminer.

Depuis plusieurs années, notre rencontre annuelle ne nous laisse pas assez de temps pour discuter de façon approfondie de questions en-dehors de nos affaires courantes. C’est pourquoi je demande aux membres du comité de planifier leur congrès de façon à être disponibles pour notre assemblée spéciale du dimanche, cette année. Votre présence est importante, car nous ne serons en mesure de mener nos activités que si nous avons quorum.

Vous recevrez un ordre du jour par l’entremise de nos plateformes de médias sociaux au moins sept jours avant la rencontre.

Je vous remercie de votre engagement au sein du CCHF. Au plaisir de vous voir le 27 mai!

Call for papers: Interdisciplinary Feminist sessions at Congress 2018 /Appel à propositions de communications: sessions féministes interdisciplinaires au Congrès 2018

Call for papers: Interdisciplinary Feminist sessions at Congress 2018 /Appel à propositions de communications: sessions féministes interdisciplinaires au Congrès 2018

Members of the associations co-sponsoring these two interdisciplinary feminist sessions at Congress are circulating this call for papers to their members (le français suit):

Interdisciplinary Feminist Session 1:

Reconciliation and Calls to Action: Feminist Responses and Responsibilities

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s ninety-four Calls to Action require engaged and committed responses across a broad spectrum of institutions and communities: “Virtually all aspects of Canadian society should be reconsidered” (TRC, 2015, vi). This interdisciplinary session invites both Indigenous and non-Indigenous perspectives concerning feminists’ responsibilities in responding to the TRC. Presenters are invited to engage with specific calls and consider what this means in terms of the rights of Indigenous women and the responsibilities of non-Indigenous women. In addition, analyses that critically engage with the TRC are welcome. Such interventions might contextualize the TRC within a particular historical moment or consider how the TRC may be useful—and sometimes challenging— to achieving social justice for Indigenous women. Considerations on the connections between feminism and family health/balance are encouraged. Finally, papers are welcome that describe and analyse the relationship between the TRC and movements by Indigenous women towards decolonization and Indigenous resurgence: the tensions and potentially fruitful connections between them.

Interdisciplinary Feminist Session 2

Futures of Feminisms

This interdisciplinary session invites critical reflections about the futures of feminisms, in theory and in everyday practices. Contributors may draw on historical analyses that inform possible feminist futures or map contemporary fields of feminisms — queer, Indigenous, intersectional, trans, global South, socialist, eco-feminist and more — as entry points into imagining ways towards feminist futures. What challenges do feminist futures face? And what might the futures of feminisms look like, in all their tensions and contradictions but also liberatory possibilities.

Proposals may ONLY be submitted by members of the co-sponsoring associations to the following dedicated gmail account and using the form below:

congressinterfeminisms[at]gmail.com

Deadline for proposals: Jan 27, 2018.


Les membres des associations qui co-marrainent ces deux sessions féministes interdisciplinaires au Congrès transmettent cette invitation à leurs membres :

SESSION INTERDISCIPLINAIRE 1:

La réconciliation et les appels à l’action: les réponses et les responsabilités feministes

Les quatre-vingt-quatre appels à l’action de la Commission de vérité et réconciliation exigent des réponses engagées à travers un large éventail d’institutions et communautés : « Tous les aspects de la société canadienne pourraient devoir être réexaminés » (CVR, 2015, viii). Cette séance interdisciplinaire invite des perspectives autochtones et non autochtones ayant trait aux responsabilités des féministes à répondre à la CVR. Les auteures sont invitées à réagir aux appels précis et à réfléchir sur ce que ceci veut dire pour les droits des femmes autochtones et les responsabilités des femmes non-autochtones. En outre, les analyses critiques de la CVR sont aussi les bienvenues. Des interventions peuvent contextualiser la CVR au sein d’un moment historique précis ou considérer comment la CVR peut être utile – tout en étant parfois un défi – à obtenir la justice sociale pour les femmes autochtones. Les réflexions concernant les liens entre les féminismes et la santé et les équilibres familiaux seront encouragées. Sont également les bienvenues des communications qui décrivent et analysent le rapport entre la CVR et des mouvements de femmes autochtones vers la décolonisation et la résurgence autochtone, ou les tensions et connexions qui sont potentiellement prometteuses.

 

SESSION INTERDISCIPLINAIRE 2:

Les avenirs des féminismes

Cette séance invite des réflexions critiques au sujet des avenirs des féminismes, au sein de la théorie et des pratiques quotidiennes. On peut s’inspirer des analyses historiques qui fondent des avenirs féministes possibles, ou à partir d’une carte des domaines contemporains des féminismes – queer, autochtone, intersectionnel, trans, du sud global, socialiste, écoféministe ou autres – comme points d’entrée afin d’imaginer comment se diriger vers des avenirs féministes. Quels seront les défis pour des avenirs féministes? Et à quoi ces avenirs féministes ressembleront-ils, quelles seront leurs tensions et contradictions, mais aussi leurs potentiels libérateurs?

Des propositions peuvent être soumises SEUELEMENT par le compte courriel qui suit et en utilisant le formulaire ci-dessous. Seules les membres des associations qui co-marraine peuvent faire une proposition.

CFP: Winnipeg General Strike Centenary Conference

THE WINNIPEG GENERAL STRIKE OF 1919

was a landmark moment in North American working-class  history. In May and June that year, over 30,000 workers  ceased work for six weeks. Provoked by the inequities of industrial capitalism, the authoritarianism of their workplaces, the brutal experiences of the First World War, rising prices and stagnating wages, an insecure economic outlook, intransigent employers, and a federal state that responded to their demands with growing repression, the city’s workers stood together in an astounding display of unity. Tis was also an era filled with hope; the horrors of industrialization and militarism encouraged many to think of ways of constructing a better world. The combination of anger and hope was infectious. In 1919, Winnipeg workers displayed an inspiring unity, facing hunger, threats of permanent dismissal and blacklisting, and violence at the hands of authorities, most notably in the vicious assault they unleashed on “Bloody Saturday,” killing two workers and injuring many more.

A CENTURY LATER, AS WE DESIRE TO UNDERSTAND AND COMMEMORATE THESE EVENTS, WE CAN’T HELP BUT BE STRUCK BY CONTINUITIES – SO MANY OF THE THEMES OF 1919 CONTINUE TO CONFRONT US TODAY:

  1. THE FIGHT FOR A BETTER LIFE

Just as workers in 1919 sought to life themselves and their communities out of poverty and win a fairer share of the fruits of economic growth, 21st-century workers are facing worsening material conditions: stagnating wages and increasing precarious employment, along with cuts to social services that increase demands upon working- class families. The “Fight for 15,” struggles for family supports such as child care, and the rise of antipoverty movements are at the forefront of today’s organizing, reflecting the ways in which neoliberalism has forced the fight for a living wage and a working-class economic security onto centre stage.

  1. SOLIDARITY ACROSS BOUNDARIES

A century ago, Winnipeg was a divided city – not only along the lines of class, but workers were, themselves, divided along lines of race and ethnicity. A capitalist labour market pitted “British Canadian” and “immigrant” workers against each other; the First World War heightened fears of the “foreigners,” and the economic insecurity that faced returning soldiers at the end of the war led, on occasion, to confrontations on the streets of Winnipeg.

Amazingly, attempts by employers to use bigotry to divide the city’s strikers failed. Today, governments and businesses use international borders, an exclusionary “citizenship” which often denies workers from abroad a range of social and labour rights, and post 9/11 xenophobia, to ensure their control over labour. The lessons of overcoming these divisions and fighting for common, expanded rights, are as central today as they were then, and include a growing understanding of the rights of Indigenous people as First Peoples and as workers.

  1. BUILDING A WORKING-CLASS ALTERNATIVE

The Winnipeg General Strike was part of a continent-wide, even an international, labour revolt that saw unions, mass strikes and working-class parties act in their own name. In Winnipeg, despite the defeat of the strike, socialist and labour parties continued the fight by other means. This was an era in which labour was the voice of the dispossessed; if there was a solution to the problems that capitalism brought, itn was represented by labour.

In the 21st century, a wide range of social movements address issues that were often unimagined a century ago. Building an effective response to a wide range of assaults on the environment, and in defence of Indigenous rights, gender rights, on the rights of the disabled, and so much more, requires education, organizing, and mobilization. To what extent are these class issues that labour needs to centrally address? Can labour lead in building a better world in which all forms of oppression and exploitation are fought? These are all broad themes, but the Winnipeg General Strike, although provoked by specific issues of collective bargaining, exploded into a broader revolt because it spoke to much broader issues, provided a voice to the dispossessed, and raised the question of whether labour had the answers. This conference hopes to tie the past and the present together by examining these three themes in their historical and contemporary context.


We invite a range of scholars, trade unionists, and social activists to share their knowledge and experiences. We envisage presentations and discussions by historians, labour studies scholars, and unionists about the General Strike, the subsequent history of labour’s attempts to address these themes, as well as contemporary struggles. We invite public historians to engage in discussions of the manner in which this history has been shared, how to best engage with a wider audience. What part can teachers play in including an understanding of workers’ history, including the Strike, at all levels of education? Finally, the conference will include roundtable discussions, led by activists, of the three themes listed above.

We call, then, for proposals for individual presentations, panels, and roundtables that address the themes of the conference.

The organizers are presently exploring funding opportunities to help off set travel costs and other costs associated with conference attendance. It is hoped – though not guaranteed – that some of the costs of participation may be covered.


INFORMATION FOR EACH PERSON INVOLVED:

  1. Presentation Title
  2. A 100-150-word outline of the presentation.
  3. A 100-150-word biography.

These must include (if applicable) a list of publications, activities, and a list of positions (paid and/or voluntary) relevant to this event. Tis information is essential to assisting the organizers in soliciting funding to support travel and other workshop costs.

PROPOSALS FOR INDIVIDUAL PRESENTATIONS, PANELS, OR ROUNDTABLES ARE DUE FEBRUARY 1, 2018.

Please email these materials as an attachment in Word format to the program committee at: 1919strikeconference@brandonu.ca
