The Journal of Women’s History is inaugurating a new special section of the journal that will be devoted to the practice of women’s history. We are interested in short individual pieces (1,000-2000 words), as well as full roundtable forums of four to five contributors (5-10,000 words total) that explore cutting edge questions in history practice – from the archive to personal narrative work, from grant-writing and publishing to teaching, from activism and community service to campus and department politics.
We are currently soliciting short papers for our first roundtable forum:
“Teaching gender and women’s history in times of war.”
We would like to assemble a range of perspectives from across the globe. Although we realize the importance of addressing the topic of women and war, for this forum we are interested in pieces that discuss teaching about women and gender in times of war. If you would like to contribute to this first forum or have ideas about future history practice sections (either individual or roundtable), please contact the editors at the e-mail address or contact information provided below.
