*CFP: The History and Politics of Abortion*



An edited collection by Tracy Penny
Light and Shannon Stettner








Women's bodies have always been sites of
struggle--over meanings and for


control. The most polarizing conflicts
involve women's reproductive


autonomy. Around the world women
continue to fight for or to retain hard


won abortion rights. Women's experiences
with abortion are contested by


and between the medical establishment,
the state, churches, the media, and


activists. Further complicating these
conflicts are issues of race, class,


gender, and heteronormativity. This
collection seeks to publish works on


the history and politics of abortion
worldwide. We invite theoretical,


country-specific, and transnational
comparative pieces.






Topics may include, but are not limited
to:




-Shifting (historical/political)
meanings of abortion




-The place of women in abortion
politics/history




-Historical constructions of the fetus



-'Pro-choice' and 'pro-life' activism



-Reproductive justice movement



-The role of the state in abortion
politics




- The role of the medical profession in
abortion politics




-The influence of medical advancements
on abortion politics/history




-Abortion and sexuality





Please submit abstracts of no more than
300 words and a one-page CV to


Tracy Penny Light at abortionpolitics@gmail.com. Article abstracts due

November 30, 2012.

in the twentieth century. Her


forthcoming book, _Shifting Interests:

masculinity and the feminine ideal in


Canada and the United States as well as on
developing historical thinking


in students. She is also co-editing two

English Canada: Public Debates and
