Malgorzata Fidelis (University of Illinois at Chicago) and Junko Takeda (Syracuse University) are proposing a panel entitled, "Controlling Sexuality in Modern Europe, 18th - 20th centuries: Comparative and Transnational Perspectives," for the International Institute for Social History's Seventh European Social Science History Conference to be held at the University of Letters of the University of Lisbon, Portugal, 27 February - 1 March 2008. Takeda's paper will discuss 18th century French notions of prostitution, pre-marital sex and reform in the context of the Great Plague of Marseille; Fidelis's presentation will discuss controlling sexuality in Communist Eastern Europe in comparative perspective.
We are looking for another panelist who would be interested in presenting a paper on sexuality in 19th century Europe. Additionally, we are also searching for a chair/commentator for this panel.
As the deadline for the panel proposals in looming, we ask that interested individuals send inquiries/ideas for a paper, as well as a CV, by March 15, to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com . Once we get a panel together, we will then ask that an abstract (100 - 500 words) be sent to us by March 30th.
