The Programming Committee for the Third Annual Graduate Symposium on Women's and Gender History, a multi-disciplinary conference at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, announces a Call for Papers. The Symposium, which is intended to kick off the activities on campus in celebration of Women's History Month, is scheduled for March 7-9, 2002. To celebrate and encourage further work in the field of women's and gender history, we invite submissions from graduate students from any institution or discipline on any topic in women's or gender history. We welcome papers on any historical subject that might grow out of a variety of disciplines and engage an equal diversity of methodologies. We also welcome panel submissions, which should include three papers united by a common theme or geographical/chronological focus, although the three papers will be judged on their individual merits. We also invite interested graduate students to provide commentary for panels, as well as professors interested in chairing panels.
Please send 5 copies of a two-page abstract, together with a one-page curriculum vitae, to the Programming Committee mailbox at the below address. All submissions must be received by Thursday, November 29, 2001. We regret that we cannot accept any submissions over e-mail. For more information about the symposium, please visit our website below, or contact Elisa Miller at the email address below. If you are interested in being a chair or a commentator, you may contact Laura Neil at firstname.lastname@example.org.
