Women/Gender Network of the Social Science History Association
Annual Meeting, November 15-18, 2001, Chicago, Illinois.
The Women/Gender Network of the Social Science History Association is soliciting complete panels and individual papers for possible presentation at the 2001 meeting of SSHA.
FOR MORE INFORMATION, CONTACT:
Network Representatives for 2001: Kathleen Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org), and Patricia Turner (email@example.com)
The SSHA Women/Gender Page (below).
The theme set for next year's conference is "Quantitative and Qualitative Approaches to Social Science History." We welcome the submission of thematic sessions that, as the general call for papers puts it, consider the "role of human agency in quantitative historical research."
Participants at this year's network meeting recommended that the representatives also solicit sessions on the following topics:
gender and the welfare state
intersections (of race, class, gender; of family history and women's history; etc.)
women in civil society
gender and world history
citizens and subjects
gender and space
life histories and biographies
This is not an exclusive list; those interested in proposing other topics are encouraged to do so.
In addition to traditional paper presentations and book sessions, we are inviting network participants to consider innovative session structures. Network members suggested workshops, panels that consisted of
working papers, and sessions devoted to discussions of readings.
PANEL DIVERSITY ENCOURAGED
The network organizers want to encourage panel proposals that provide comparative perspectives across time and national boundaries, that reflect the multi-disciplinary make-up of SSHA, and that point to the intersection of gender and race/ethnicity/class/age/disability.
The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2001.
The women/gender network representatives have created a Bulletin Board for individuals to post information about papers looking for panels and panels looking for papers, discussants, and chairs. The address:
Submit complete panels, single papers, or poster proposals directly to the network through the online submission process on the SSHA Annual Meeting home page (www.ipums.umn.edu/~ssha).
The network representatives and program co-chairs are using a rolling acceptance system for complete panels, so it is best to submit your proposals early.
