I am interested in putting together a panel for the Berkshire Conference of Women Historians. The theme of the conference is "Generations: Exploring Race, Sexuality, and Labor across Time and Space." My paper focuses on the social and legal regulation of adolescent female sexuality. To be emphasized is a comparison today's abstinence movement with nineteenth century purity campaigns.
I would love to talk with others who might want to put together a panel with me. We could go in a number of direction, but likely key themes include; young women's sexuality, the regulation of women's bodies, nineteenth century women's activism, notions of sexual victimhood and agency, and possibly prostitution. I am open to other related ideas as well.
If you are interested in discussing forming a panel (as either a presenter, a chair or discussant) please contact me by February 24th.
