The Boston Seminar on the History of Women and Gender invites proposals for its 2008-2009 series. Programs take place alternately at the Schlesinger Library of the Radcliffe Institute and at the Massachusetts Historical Society. The committee welcomes suggestions for papers dealing with all aspects of the history of women and/or gender in the U.S. and papers comparing the American experience with that in other parts of the world.
Each session focuses on the discussion of a pre-circulated paper. The essayist and an assigned commentator will each offer remarks before the discussion is opened to the floor. Papers must be available for circulation at least a month before the seminar date.
The Seminar’s steering committee will fill some sessions through invitations and others through this call for papers. To be considered for a slot, please send your CV and a one-page précis of your paper by March 15 to Jane Becker, Massachusetts Historical Society, 1154 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02215, or to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your proposal should indicate when your paper will be available for distribution and also address any special scheduling conditions, such as a scheduled trip to Boston or an extended period when you cannot make a presentation.
