The Programming Committee for the Fourth 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 part of activities on campus in celebration of Women's History Month, is scheduled for March 13-15, 2003. 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 each of the three papers will be judged on its individual merit. Preference will be given to scholars who did not present a paper at last year's Third Annual Graduate Symposium on Women's and Gender History. We also invite graduate students to serve as commentators and professors to act as chairs for panels.
Please send 5 copies of a two-page abstract, together with a one-page curriculum vitae, to the Programming Committee mailbox at the address below. All submissions must be postmarked by December 4, 2002. We regret that we cannot accept any submissions over e-mail at this time.
For information about the symposium, please visit our web site or contact
Marjorie Hilton via email. If you are interested in being a chair or a commentator, you may also contact Marjorie Hilton.
