Gender audit of Australian democracy:

The Democratic Audit of Australia published a new report for International Women's Day 2007 entitled How well does Australian democracy serve Australian women? The authors are Sarah Maddison and Emma Partridge. Their findings are that Australia has lost momentum over the past decade in the pursuit of gender equality and is unlikely to regain it without pressure from a revitalised women's movement. The report can be found on-line at:

Penny Russell and Margaret Allen

University of Innsbruck:

The office for gender studies survived the disturbances of the university reform. One of its activities is the prize for gender-related M.A.-theses and Ph.Ds. In 2007 the prize money was increased (€ 3.000.-) and anchored for the first time in the ordinary budget. - Due to the re-organisation of the university, specific research areas were instituted after approval by the rectorate. One - headed by the political scientist Erna Appelt - spans several faculties: Gender Research: Identities – Discourse – Transformations ( Activities and aims are documented in the booklet Geschlechterforschung: Identitaeten. Diskurse, Transformationen. Among the historical contributions are: Elisabeth Dietrich-Daum/Maria Heidegger/Marina Hilber/Alois Unterkircher: Psychiatrics and gender in a historical perspective. The latest activity of this research area was an interdisciplinary conference: “Critic of Emotions (“Kritik der Gefuehle”): Feminist Positions”, organized by Agnes Neumayr with historical contributions by Christina Antenhofer (Emotional patterns of argumentation or emotions as required duties?) and Ellinor Forster (Female repertoire of emotions in conflicts in the 19th century: Confronting experience and attribution of emotions) (Vide:

- Innsbruck University is currently adopting its curricula to the Bologna-requirements (introducing BA and MA levels). The rectorate wants to implement the gender aspect in at least one module of every curricula. Not every field of study can cope with that, the debate is still going on. - An exhibition located in the South-Tyrolean Museum of History at Schloss Tirol in Meran/Merano is focusing this year (June 30 – November 19, 2007) on "Margarete, margrave of Tyrol (1308-1369)", curator is Julia Hoermann-Thurn und Taxis (

University of Vienna:

The University of Vienna has established a research platform Repositioning of Women´s and Gender History, headed by Edith Saurer and Christa Haemmerle (, which allows to comment on, preserve the range of memories of and initiate research transcending national and other borders on the changing discussions on the history of women and gender relations (roles) in Europe since 1989. The international journal “L’Homme. European Review of Feminist History”, the Collection of Women’s Bequests (“Sammlung Frauennachlaesse”) linked to the project on “Language and Memory in Women’s Diaries in the 20th Century” as well as the establishment of international networks are the three main pillars of the research platform. In this context “L’Homme” held a workshop (organized by Edith Saurer and Margareth Lanzinger) on 1 June 2007 on Imaginary Borders in Europe from the Perspective of Women's and Gender History. - Faculty members teaching women’s and gender history at the University of Vienna have initiated the project MATILDA: European Master in Women’s and Gender History (Joint Degree) in 2006 within the Socrates programme of the European Union Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency. The project is headed by professors Carola Sachse (Dept. of Contemporary History) and Christa Haemmerle (Dept. of History) and has Susan Zimmermann (Central European University, Budapest), Sylvie Schweitzer (University of Lyon 2), Elizabeth Harvey (University of Nottingham), and Krassimira Daskalova (University of Sofia) as partners. - Carola Sachse has founded a new book series on perspectives in contemporary history (Perspektiven in der neueren und neuesten Geschichte. Kultur, Wissen, Geschlecht, Didymos Verlag) together with Ulrike Gleixner and Daniela Hacke. Vol. 1 is to appear soon (Ulrike Gleixner, Erika Hebeisen eds., Gendering Tradition. Erinnerungskulturen und Geschlecht im Pietismus).

UP CONFERENCES & Research Projects


The women’s documentation centre in Graz (Frauen-Dokumentations-Zentrums Graz) has recently started a project on the history of the second women’s movement from a biographical perspective (“Zeitzeuginnen- und Zukunftsarchiv frauen leben vielfalt”). - Karin M. Schmidlechner (Dept. of History) contributed to the NODE-project “Minority Protection in Europe and its effects on the process of European integration” (headed by Josef Marko, University of Graz) which ran from 2004 to 2006. Karin Schmidlechner’s report on “European Integration and Minority Protection: The Gender Aspect” is forthcoming. - Heidrun Zettelbauer (Dept. of History) and Hildegard Kernmayer (Depart. Of German Studies) will organize a workshop on Geschlecht – Migrationen – Identitäten in June 2008 within the scope of the research focus MIGRATION at the Centre for Cultural Studies, funded by the Zukunftsfonds Steiermark. Heidrun Zettelbauer also heads the Hertha Firnberg-project Gender & Germanness: (Kollektiv-)Biographien deutschnational-völkischer Frauen in der Habsburgermonarchie und in Österreich and a further project on migration, body and gender within the research focus MIGRATION.


Due to the bicentennial of 1809 (war against Napoleon and his Bavarian allies) several research projects have started. A clearly gender oriented one is headed by Siglinde Clementi (Suedtiroler Landesarchiv) and focuses on “Life of Women in Tyrol around 1800”. By analysing the life of different women that had a leading role in the anti-Napoleonic movements the contributors (Siglinde Clementi, Maria Heidegger, Cecilia Nubola, Margareth Lanzinger, Christine Roilo, Raffaela Sarti) try to depict various levels of female life in urban and rural areas. Another project by Astrid von Schlachta and Ellinor Forster (Dept. of History) will illustrate every week of the year 1809 with female aspects, thus setting up a clear counterpart to the publicly dominating commemoration of heroic fights against French and Bavarians. - Laurie R. Cohen received a Senior Post-Doc Research Grant in December 2006 from the FWF (Austrian Research Fund).Title: “Women Pacifists Reconsidered. A Trans-Atlantic Dialogue”. The project will examine women pacifists and anti-militarists in Austria(-Hungary), Germany, Russia and the United States, 1900-1950.


Tina Bahovec (Dept. of History) is working on her habilitation “Geschlechter.Grenzen”, a gender analysis of the Austro-Yugoslav-Italian border conflicts after the World Wars. It links research on gender and nationalism and includes topics such as: concepts of masculinity and femininity; sexuality and militarism; women’s political associations etc.


Gabriella Hauch (Dept. of Women’s and Gender Studies) is currently working on two projects, on women in the city of Linz in the 20th century and on foundations of the category “gender” in science and society. - Karin Neuwirth’s (Dept. of Legal History) project Of Women, Children and Fools. Who is Designated as Standard, who as Exception? An Analysis of the Austrian Legal Situation in the Constitutional State of the 19th and 20th century follows the question of equalization and/or discrimination in all parts of law, based on the hypothesis that the recent wave of anti-discrimination laws prolong differences by definition although their intention is the removal of existing legal categorizations and of virtual inequality.


Ingrid Bauer (Dept. of History), Christa Haemmerle, Barbara Asen, and Nikola Langreiter are collaborating in a project on writing about love in narratives of the 19th and 20th centuries. - Sabine Veits-Falk (City Archives of Salzburg) is preparing a publication about the first woman doctor practising in Austria, the eye specialist Dr. Rosa Kerschbaumer-Putjata (1851–1923), who studied medicine in Switzerland, ran a private ophthalmic clinic in Salzburg, and operated mobile ophthalmic clinics along the newly opened Transsiberian Railway after 1896, besides participating in the women’s movement.


The interdisciplinary project Language and Memory in Women’s Diaries of the 20th Century (a sub-project of the research platform Repositioning of Women´s and Gender History, led by Christa Haemmerle, Edith Saurer, Juliane Vogel, and Ruth Wodak / deals with the genre of women’s diaries in order to research the individual as well as collective functions of this genre for women (in particular also in times of political upheaval and crisis), to probe their literary value and to test methods of textual analysis. - Waltraud Heindl and Wolfgang Mueller-Funk have completed their research project on Centres and Peripheries in the Habsburg Monarchy and are currently planning one on Social Darwinism in the Habsburg Monarchy: Strategies of Inclusion and Exclusion which will again have a special emphasis on gender. A preparatory workshop will be held in October 2007 at Schloss Rothmuehle, Schwechat. - Doris Ingrisch is working on a book about female artists as pioneers of new ways of life. - The project Women’s Movements – „Women in Motion“. Digital Archive and Historiography, Habsburg Monarchy / Austria 1848-1938 (Lydia Jammernegg and Natascha Vittorelli , headed by Helga Hofmann-Weinberger, Austrian National Library, in cooperation with Johanna Gehmacher, Dept. of Contemporary History) aims at identifying and analyzing the focal points of research and scholarly debates as well as unresolved issues pertinent to the historiography of Austrian women’s movements and is setting up a digital archive of documents and sources related to women’s movements in Austria for the period 1918–1938. The workshop Frauenbewegung vernetzt. Historiographie und Dokumentation that took place in Vienna on 20 April 2007 has begun to create a network of documentalists and historians of the women’s movement. It broached the issues of women’s movements both as historical phenomena as well as objects of scholarly and documentalist work. - Carola Sachse (Dept. of Contemporary History) is participating in a project on Utopias, Human Rights, and Gender in Twentieth-Century Europe, together Atina Grossman (Cooper Union, New York) and Mary Nolan (New York University), funded by New York University, Sigmund-Freud-Privatstiftung, and Historisch-Kulturwissenschaftliche Fakultaet of the University of Vienna. The first workshop will be held 13-16 December 2007 in Vienna.
