Conexões II Global and Transnational History Seminar - Session I: Pan-American Feminism and the Rise of International Women's Rights, 1915-1946
Praia de Botafogo, 190. Fundação Getulio Vargas - 04/08/2015 - 16:00 - 18:00 - 04/08/2015 - 16:00 - 18:00
In recent decades, under the title of global or transnational, new historiographical debates and theoretical and methodological approaches of the social sciences, produced in the North Atlantic axis, took shape by reflecting the new globalization phenomenon, accelerated since the 1970s. On the South, at the same time, rather than simply importing these new approaches to the reading of History and renewing a parochial relationship with Europe or the United States, scholars have been developing new lines of thought which are not limited to Nation-State political boundaries.
Therefore, research in the North and in the South of the so called Western world have known new questionings and revaluated connections and exchanges between societies, cultures and spaces that have been so far underestimated or disregarded.
The main goal of this seminar is to create a forum at FGV’s School of Social Sciences that could become not only a space for researchers to present studies from the perspectives previously mentioned, but also to understand the relationships and create bridges of dialogue between different new practices of research in social sciences and to contribute to a greater internationalization of Brazilian academia.
 Pan-American Feminism and the Rise of International Women's Rights, 1915-1946
Professor Katherine Marino, Ohio State University, will give the first lecture, presenting her book project Pan-American Feminism and the Rise of International Women's Rights, 1915-1946 – followed by a debate session with professor Alexandre Moreli (Center for International Relations/FGV).
Marino has a Ph.D. from Stanford University and is currently an assistant professor at the Departments of History and Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies. Her academic interests include 21st century North American history, history of women, gender, and sexuality at the Americas and feminist transnational movement.
The event will take place on August 4th, from 4pm to 6pm at auditorium 1333 - 13th floor
