Homes and Homecomings: A Special Issue of Gender & History
Call for Papers Date:
This Special Issue of the international journal, Gender & History, will revisit and look anew at questions about ‘the home’ and ‘homeliness’ and their gendered and historical implications. It aims to bring together historians, cultural geographers, architectural and visual historians, and ask them to explore gendered ideas of the home as both domestic and national spaces and, crucially, spaces – imagined, archival, material – where both these ideas might interact.
We welcome original articles in all areas and periods, including those with illustrations (permissions to be secured by the author).
The Special Issue is due to be published in 2009 and to appear in 2010 as a book. All articles published in Gender & History undergo full anonymous peer review.
Articles should be about 9,000 words and conform to the Gender & History style: see http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/journal.asp?ref=0953-5233
Proposals of 300 words should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 July 2007. Those submitting successful proposals will be invited to present their articles at a conference to be held in Nottingham, GB, in early 2008.
