Sexuality and Violence in Historical Perspective

Published on 14 March 2019 par Institut du genre

This roundtable, organized by PRESAGE in collaboration with the Center of History at Sciences Po, brings together three distinguished historians of sexuality and gender to discuss their current research. How, precisely, can history contribute to understanding and framing sexual violence from a longue-durée perspective? What theories and methods do historians use to interrogate their sources?

• ULRIKE LINDNER, University of Cologne, Race and Sexuality in Colonial Societies around 1900: "Miscegeneation", "Going Native" and Forced Sexual Relations"

• PATRICK FARGES, Université Paris Diderot, Imitating and Transgressing Sexual Gender Codes: The Making of German-Jewish Masculinities (1910s-1930s)
