Disarming women.

Women’s reflection and the anti-nuclear movement from 1945 to the present day.
International conference Venice, 22-23 November2018

Within the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence promoted by the United Nations, the journal DEP. Deportate, esuli, profughe / Deportees, Exiles, Refugees is organising an international conference on the topic of feminist reflection and the anti-nuclear and geoengineering movement from the first declarations following the launch of the atomic bomb in 1945 to the movements in post-Fukushima Japan.

The conference is divided into two strands. The first strand will focus on the theme of the formation of the women’s anti-nuclear movements and sets out toexamine the activists’ motivations in different countries, to understanda collective mood, to explore decision-making mechanisms, and to reconstruct methods ofdissemination of the aims, including songs, theatrical representations, and fictional works.

The second strand will centre on the underlying philosophy of tactics and strategies, on the theoretical reflection that inspired the movements.

Submissions may focus on individual activists and thinkers
(such as Dorothy Detzer, Dora Russell, Rachel Carson, Kathleen Lonsdale, Dagmar Wilson, TherèseCasgrain, Elisabetta Donini, Helen Caldicott, Rosalie Bertell); on the organisations that promoted the campaigns and the movements that formed spontaneously (Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom,Women Strike for Peace,theGreenham CommonWomen’s Peace Camp, Planetare Bewegung für Mutter Erde). Submissions may also focus on how the movements developed in individual countries.
