A lecture on gender, citizenship policies in Trieste during the post-WWI transition
How do you establish a nation-state in a (post)imperial context, like a port city, where no clear ethno-national lines are discernible? According to what criteria is citizenship granted? How do you choose who can become a citizen and who cannot? How do you get women nationalized? And finally, what do the processes of women’s nationalization tell us about the ‘master nation’ ‘to be established’?
These and other questions will be addressed by Prof. Maura E. Hametz (James Madison University, USA) in the RIC Lecture Gender and Citizenship in Trieste: Post-World War I Life in the Imperial Port, which will be held at Ca’ Bernardo (Sala B – Dorsoduro 3199, Calle Bernardo, Venezia) on 29 November 2023, 3.30 p.m. CET.
The event is organized in the framework of: the RIC Lectures of the Master’s Degree Programme in Comparative International Relations of the Department of Linguistics and Comparative Cultural Studies – Ca’ Foscari University of Venice; the NextGenerationEU Project ‘Ondine. Women’s Labour and Everyday Life on the Upper and Eastern Adriatic Waterfronts, mid-19th century–mid-20th century’ (Funded by EU; CUP E53C22002420001) hosted by the Department of History, Humanities and Society of the Tor Vergata University of Rome.
