The History Department of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst will hold a one-day symposium on North American sexualities in the post-World War II era on April 24, 2004. Graduate students and scholars working in this field of research are invited to submit paper proposals. The symposium, focusing on works in progress, will provide a forum for junior researchers and graduate students to interact with established scholars in the field. It is intended to contribute to the formulation of new research questions and facilitate intellectual exchange and collaboration across institutional lines. The symposium is funded in part by the Sexuality Research Fellowship Program of the Social Science Research Council and the University of Massachusetts.
Although all submissions will be considered, we particularly encourage studies that connect sexual matters to broad historical contexts, including domestic politics and foreign policy; the history of gender, race, and ethnicity; popular beliefs and everyday life; and intellectual and artistic movements.
All papers will be circulated in advance, available to registered participants on a password-protected website. Presenters must therefore commit to submit their papers no later than March 1st, 2004. Please send a one-page CV and a proposal of 750 words by October 15, 2003 as email attachment to Babette Faehmel: firstname.lastname@example.org and Heather Murray: email@example.com. For additional information regarding the symposium please feel free to contact us at the email address provided below or check our website.
