“GENDER, RACE, ETHNICITY AND POWER IN MARITIME AMERICA”
Mystic Seaport Museum, Inc. and the Frank C. Munson Institute of American Maritime Studies will sponsor a multidisciplinary discussion of gender, race and ethnicity in the maritime world at Mystic Seaport in Mystic, Connecticut, October 26-29, 2006. Graduate and postgraduate scholars in a range of disciplines -- American studies, history and literature; geography, anthropology, archeology, sociology and other social sciences; Native American, African American, Latin American, and Asian American studies; women's and gender studies -- as well as museum professionals, public historians, and professional educators at all levels, are encouraged to submit proposals for individual papers or presentations in other formats. Mystic Seaport plans to publish selected conference papers.
The program will engage a wide community of scholars, teachers, researchers, museum professionals, and the general public in an inclusive conversation about issues of gender, race, ethnicity, authority and power in American maritime history very broadly defined, in local, national, and global contexts. Sessions will be organized to foster an interdisciplinary dialogue among participants about the state of scholarship in the field, new research, and public access through institutional, educational, and media programming.
Please e-mail a 250-word abstract of the proposed paper, panel or presentation and c.v.(s) before April 15, 2006, to: firstname.lastname@example.org .
