Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Gender as a Category of Knowledge

Vojin Saša Vukadinović

PhD Project:

Politics of Resentment: Antifeminism, Homophobia, Leftist Terrorism in the FRG, 1970 – 1982

 

 

Description of the Project

 

My PhD project aims to analyze the interplay between antifeminism, homophobia, and leftist terrorism in the Federal Republic of Germany in the 1970s and early 1980s. The first part of my thesis examines official government and scientific publications which suggested a quasi- or explicitly feminist motivation behind leftist activities, as well as material which postulated »deviant« sexual instincts to be at work in the underground. The second part takes a closer look at the Red Army Faction’s writings, as well as the correspondence of the imprisoned leftist terrorists, in order to analyze their respective notions of gender and sexuality – demonstrating that the leftist jargon of »liberation« had little to offer in terms of gender and sexual emancipation per se. Against this backdrop, the dissertation is not only a historiographical critique of leftist terrorism in the Federal Republic, but also an account of the genderrelated and sexual backlash after 1968.
