We are looking for a third member for our panel on the uses of domestic space in the nineteenth-century South for the 2006 Southern Conference on Women’s History, June 8-11 in Baltimore. Our panel is tentatively entitled “The Politics of Domestic Spaces: Gender, Class, and Race in the 19th Century Southern Homes.”
The other papers on the panel are “Where they Laboured: Birthing Rooms and Sewing Rooms in the Lives of Antebellum Southern Women” by Lynn Kennedy (University of Lethbridge); and “Gender & the Big House: Elite Slaveholders, Domestic Space, and Power in the Antebellum South” by Marise
Bachand (University of Western Ontario).
The due date for proposals is August 1. If you are interested in participating in this panel or would like more information please contact us off-list at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com ASAP.
