Call for Panelist - "Representing Sex in the Sexual Revolution"
OAH Annual Meeting, 26 - 29 March 2009 in Seattle
We have two papers and are seeking a third for a panel on discursive representations of women in American print media during the "sexual revolution."
This panel will explore how understandings of "proper" and "improper" womanhood have been constructed in print from the end of WWII through the 1970s. One paper will examine the debates over California "working girls" (women employed as waitresses, topless dancers, strippers, and the like in urban nightlife establishments) enacted in mainstream newspapers during the 1950s and 1960s. The second paper explores the innovative reconceptualizations of normative womanhood seen in radical feminist periodicals of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Interested panelists should submit a 250-word abstract to Syd Lindsley at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, 8 Feb 2008. The CFP deadline is 15 Feb 2008.
