I am assembling a panel for the 2011 Berkshire Conference on the History of Women that will address the theme "GENERATIONS: Exploring Race, Sexuality, and Labor across Time and Space” by exploring how sexuality, race and labor have operated in borderlands or frontier contexts. I seek papers that engage with questions such as: What role did sexuality play in borderlands society and politics, and how has its role varied in different times and frontier contexts? How did women’s reproductive, sexual and domestic labors make settlement or conquest possible? How did these kinds of labor help to define what counted as settlement or conquest? I invite papers about how women mobilized their sexuality and labor from any historical or geographical borderland. Please submit your 250-word abstract and a short biographical sketch by February 5, 2010, to Laurel Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
