“GENERATIONS: Exploring Race, Sexuality, and Labor across Time and Space”
This call for papers is for a proposed panel for the 2011 Berkshire Conference on the History of Women at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. The conference’s theme is “GENERATIONS: Exploring Race, Sexuality, and Labor across Time and Space.” In keeping with the conference theme, this panel is a retrospective analysis of Dr. Darlene Clark Hine’s theory of dissemblance (now over twenty years old) and seeks papers that addresses dissemblance and its application to women’s gender and sexual identities across socieconomic class, age, time, place, etc. in the African Diaspora. Papers that attempt to examine the theory and its relevance to women of African descent across national boundaries are highly encouraged. Papers should approach this idea from a historical point of view but ones that are interdisciplinary based are welcomed also.
Please submit abstracts of 200-250 words along with a brief CV to Kim Gallon at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 29th 2010.
