SOCIAL SCIENCE HISTORY ASSOCIATION, WOMEN/GENDER NETWORK Proposals are invited for the Women/Gender Network of the Social Science History Association Meeting, Chicago, 2004. The theme of the conference is "Markets as Sites of Interdisciplinary History. At the Women/Gender Network meeting in Baltimore in November, 2003, a number of interesting suggestions were put forward for sessions or individual papers relating to this overall theme.
Some of the topics suggested and discussed were:
Women's participation in labor markets and/or educational markets Markets in free and unfree labor, slave markets The market in pharmaceuticals Black market activity and gender The commercialization of caring, especially, global markets in caregivers
The commercialization of intimate life
Women/gender in literal markets: financial districts, city squares, shopping malls.
The gendered effects of "free market" politics and ideologies
Papers and whole sessions on these and related topics can be co-sponsored with other networks. If in doubt about where your proposal fits, contact us and we can discuss sending your proposal to another network, if appropriate.
The SSHA has a strong interdisciplinary tradition. As in the past, the SSHA program seeks sessions with representatives of more than one discipline and institution. It also welcomes panels dealing with different places and times.
Please note that all proposals for sessions or individual papers will be handled electronically by the Network Chairs.
