The story so far: toward a (Frin)Gender perspective within COST Action IS0901


During the Training School in The Hague in May 2011, one key issue during the debates was that the COST Action is not meant to be a project, but rather a “collection” of research projects encouraging collaborative research between different individuals/institutions/geographical areas. Based on the evidence that in the South–Eastern European area we share a common historical past, the present paper explores the perspective of a "FrinGender" collaborative research proposal: to include the countries that roughly cover the notion of S-E Europe (the so-called “Balkan” area, even though, strictly speaking from a geographical point of view, the term is far from accurate: Romania, for instance, is not a Balkan country, per se). More specifically, the paper will examine to which extent the scope of the COST Action framework may (or may not) be applied to HERstory (literary or otherwise) simply because of the historical breach between the East and the West.
