I seek additional papers for a session for the 2010 Social Science History Association meeting (Chicago, 18-21 November) on the theme of "Gender and Governmentality." There are currently two papers attached to the session, one analyzing the transmission of early modern, cameralist conceptions of the common good through economics, sociology, and bureaucratic initiative into the modern German welfare state, and one on about the Hindu Code bill fight in India just following independence. We are open to other potential papers with any chronological or geographic scope that engage with "gendering" the Foucauldian concept of governmentality.
This year's conference theme is "Politics and Power," and more information about it and the association may be found at www.ssha.org. The deadline for submissions is February 15 and we would like to finalize this session by February 1. Please reply to Marynel Ryan Van Zee (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in joining such a session.
