Call for discussant for African American Gender & Sexuality panel
Call for Papers Date:
This call is for a discussant for a panel for the 2011 Berkshire
Conference on the History of Women at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. The conference theme is "Generations: Exploring Race, Sexuality, and Labor across Time and Space"
We are seeking a relatively established scholar with an interest and
speciality in the history of African American gender and sexuality
to tie the panel papers together and engage the audience in the session.
The description of the panel is below.
The 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 contact Kim Gallon at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 24th
if you are interested in serving in this capacity. Thank you.
