CFP: Sexualities and Science in Eastern Europe

Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand, March 26-27, 2011.

"This conference examines the development of sexology and sexual psychology from the nineteenth century to the present. How did authors use (psuedo-) scientific ideas to understand human sexuality, or the role of sexuality in society? How did (psuedo-) scientific ideas in turn affect sexual behavior and experiences? This conference poses these questions with a special emphasis on Eastern Europe (including Russia), the region which produced such "seminal" figures as Sigmund Freud, Károly Mária Kertbeny, Aleksandra Kollontai, Richard von Krafft-Ebing, and Leopold Sacher-Masoch.
Topics of possible interest include, but are not limited to, sexologists, sex advice manuals, sexual psychology, sexual violence experts, eugenics and racial purity, the social science of prostitution, and experts in trafficking and sex work. We are open to scholars working in literature, sociology, history, anthropology, psychology, and cultural studies."
Submission deadline for proposals: February 2, 2011.
