Gender Issues in Atlantic History, 1500-1800:
Sources and Interpretations
A Workshop of the Atlantic History Seminar
March 31-April 1, 2001
This two-day Workshop will focus on sources for the study of gender-related topics in the history of the Atlantic world, current lines of interpretation, and the possibilities for future research. Presentations and discussion will center on such subjects as comparisons of gender roles in Europe, British America, and Latin America; changes in the status of women as a result of Atlantic emigration; European perceptions of male and female roles in the lives of Native Americans; gender differences in witchcraft, religious practice, and politics; and the recruitment and treatment of men and women as servants and slaves.
Attendance at the Workshop and participation in the discussion are open to the academic community. Historians at the beginning of their career, including Ph.D. candidates, are specially encouraged to attend. Travel and accommodation expenses will be the responsibility of attendees; the Workshop will provide lunches and local lodging information. There is no registration fee, but pre-registration is required.
There will be two sessions on Saturday, March 31, and a concluding session on Sunday morning, April 1. The program will be posted on our Web site (see below) in early March.
