Women and Mountaineering / Frauen im Bergsport

Workshop / Tagung
Wed. 21 to Fri. 23 November, 2018

Alpinismus gilt als Sport, der im Laufe seiner Entwicklung in besonderem Maße eine Verknüpfung mit männlichen Werten und Vorstellungen von (heldenhafter) Männlichkeit erfuhr. Bergsteigerinnen und ihre Leistungen wurden dementsprechend an den Rand gedrängt oder ignoriert. Das Frauenmuseum Hittisau hat sich bereits 2015 in der Ausstellung “Ich, am Gipfel. Eine Frauenalpingeschichte“ dem Thema gewidmet.

Der Workshop „Women & Mountaineering“ bringt nun internationale Expert_innen aus Großbritannien, Frankreich, Italien, Deutschland, Österreich, Dänemark, Polen und der Schweiz zusammen und widmet sich der Alpingeschichte aus frauen- bzw. geschlechterhistorischer Perspektive. Die Vorträge werden in einem Schwerpunktheft des “International Journal of the History of Sport“ publiziert.

In wegweisenden Untersuchungen und Büchern gingen die Referent_innen in den letzten Jahren der Frage nach Geschlecht als Kategorie in der Alpingeschichte nach und analysierten Geschlechterverhältnisse und die Situation von Bergsportler_innen entlang neuer Fragestellungen. Der Workshop bietet ein Forum, die Ergebnisse dieser Forschungen zu präsentieren und im Fachkreis zu diskutieren.

Der Workshop findet in englischer Sprache statt.


Over the course of its development mountaineering/alpinism has experienced an outstanding linking with male values and concepts of (heroic) masculinity. As a result women mountaineers and their achievements were marginalized or downright disregarded. With its 2015 exhibition “Ich, am Gipfel. Eine Frauenalpingeschichte” (“Me, on Top. An Alpine History of Women”) Frauenmuseum Hittisau focused on the issue.

International experts on women/gender and alpine sports from Britain, France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Denmark, Poland and Switzerland are going to attend the workshop “Women & Mountaineering” hosted by the museum. The lectures will be published in a special edition of the “International Journal of the History of Sport”.

In recent years a number of studies and books were dedicated to the issue of gender as category in mountaineering history analyzing gender relations and the circumstances of women mountaineers under new aspects. The workshop provides a platform for the presentation of the results and discussion in a circle of experts.
