********************

Myth and Reality of Anabaptist/Mennonite Women
in Continental Europe ca 1525-1900
Call for papers [Deutsche Version unten] 

The research on women and religious dissent so far has been focusing 
upon questions like: why were women attracted to religious dissent? 
What positions were allowed to women in religious movements like 
Anabaptism, Calvinism and Lutheranism? What about equality and 
patriarchalism in these new communities?

The goal of our conference is to offer another focus, by using a 
comparative, contextual, critical and multidisciplinary scope. We 
propose a new approach: "imagology". Imagology has recently emerged 
within cultural studies. It concerns the study of representations, 
stereotypes and traditions of self image. Imagologists question the 
objective information value of "images", study the structural and 
biased presuppositions behind these images and stereotypes and show 
the consequences of these beliefs in history and historiography. Our 
main theme will be:

Myth and reality of Anabaptist/Mennonite Women 

During this conference our focus will be on the images and 
stereotypes of Anabaptist/Mennonite women in documents and in 
historiography, on the development of these images and stereotypes, 
on the differences between these various images and stereotypes, and 
how to interpret them in the proper cultural, intellectual, social 
and/or church historical settings.

This conference will take place at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam 30-31 

August 2007. Papers delivered at this conference will be published in 

English.

Please send / email paper proposals of a maximum of 200 words before 
February 15, 2007, to Dr. Mirjam van Veen , Theologische Faculteit, 
Vrije Universiteit, De Boelelaan 1105, 1081 HV Amsterdam, The 
Netherlands. Email address: [log in to unmask] See for more

PD. Dr. Marion Kobelt-Groch (Mennonitische Geschichtsverein e.V. & 
Universität Hamburg)
Dr. Els M. Kloek (Universiteit Utrecht & Instituut voor Nederlandse 
Geschiedenis, Den Haag & Digitaal Vrouwenlexicon van Nederland),

Täuferinnen und Mennonitinnen: Mythos und Wirklichkeit im 
kontinentalen Europa (ca. 1525 - 1900)

Bislang hat sich die Forschung über die Beteiligung von Frauen an 
religiösen Bewegungen auf bestimmte Fragen konzentriert: Warum 
fühlten sie sich angesprochen und schlossen sich an? Welche 
Positionen nahmen sie beispielswweise in den religiösen Bewegungen 
der Täufer, im aufbrechenden Calvinismus und sich konstituierenden 
Luthertum ein? Wie war es um die Gleichheit der Geschlechter bzw. die 

patriarchale Ordnung bestellt? Das Ziel unserer Konferenz besteht 
darin, die bestehende Perspektive zu erweitern, hin zu einer 
vergleichenden, den jeweiligen Kontext berücksichtigenden, 
vielseitigen Betrachtungsweise. Vorgeschlagen wird eine neue 
Forschungsperspektive, die sich mit dem Begriff der "Imagology" 
umreißen läßt. Der den Kulturwissenschaften entlehnte Begriff zielt 
auf Fragestellungen ab, in denen es um Wahrnehmung, Stereotypen und 
Traditionen der Selbstdarstellung geht. Diese Vorgehensweise 
verlangt, den objektiven Informationswert bestimmter Bilder und 
Stereotypen zu überprüfen und die sich hinter ihnen verbergenden 
Strukturen und Voraussetzungen in Quellen und Darstellungen 
aufzudecken und sichtbar zu machen. Hieraus ergibt sich das zentrale 
Thema dieser Konferenz:

Täuferinnen und Mennonitinnen: Mythos und Wirklichkeit

Der Blick soll sich vorrangig auf Bilder und Stereotypen 
konzentrieren, wie sie durch Quellen und Darstellungen über 
Täuferinnen und Mennonitinnen vermittelt werden. Wie entwickelten 
sich derartige Bilder? Worin unterscheiden sie sich? Und wie sind sie 

im kulturellen, geistigen, sozialen, kulturellen und kirchlichen 
Rahmen historisch zu interpretieren?

Die Konferenz wird am 29. und 30. August 2007 an der Freien 
Universität Amsterdam (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) stattfinden. Es 
ist vorgesehen, die gehaltenen Vorträge in english zu publizieren. 
Vorschläge im Umfang von 200 Wörtern werden bis zum 15. Februar 2007 
erbeten. Bitte senden sie ihre Vorschläge nach Dr. Mirjam van Veen , 
Theologische Faculteit, Vrije Universiteit, De Boelelaan 1105, 1081 
HV Amsterdam, Die Niederlande. E-mail: [log in to unmask]
