Organized by Katharina Seibert (Department for Contemporary History, University of Vienna) and Barnabas Bálint (St. Magdalen’s College, University of Oxford)


Herewith we invite you to join us for the keynote by Univ.-Prof.in Dietlind Hüchtker on the categories youth and gender. The presentation is part of the international workshop "Rallying Europe: Intersectional Approaches to Youth in the Mid-Twentieth Century".

The workshop seeks to approach the interwar and Second World War period by looking through the lens of age and gender. In doing so, we hope to reveal how adult perceptions of youth and gender framed young men's and women's lives and their roles in society. Furthermore, we want to explore how these perceptions collided with youth agency, probing the specific age- and gender-related dynamics of empowerment and organization.

Parting from her research on youth in rural Poland, Dietlind Hüchtker's presentation will be the kick-off to our workshop and discussion on youth and gender as categories for the historical analysis of interwar and Second World War Europe.

Everyone interested in participating in the online keynote and discussion, is cordially invited to sign up here and join us.

The keynote will be held online via zoom, details on the login-data will be shared upon registration.
