The Department of History of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst invites you to its Symposium on North American Sexualities/post-World War II
Keynote Speaker: Regina Kunzel, Williams College
Endnote Speaker: Angus McLaren, University of Victoria, Canada
Focusing on works in progress, this event will provide a forum for junior researchers and graduate students to interact with established scholars in the field. We hope that it will contribute to the formulation of new research questions and facilitate intellectual exchange and collaboration across institutional lines.
The symposium is generously funded by the Sexuality Research Fellowship Program of the Social Science Research Council, the University of Massachusetts, and the UMASS Five College Graduate Program and History Fund.
Presenters will 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.
We seek to actively integrate the audience in the discussion of the material. All papers will therefore circulate in advance, available to registered participants on a password-protected website. Please consult the conference website at http://www.umass.edu/history/postww2sexualities for further information and instructions on how to register and receive your password. We are looking forward to seeing you in Amherst!
