Lessons of War: Gender History and the Second World War
This is a call for papers for a conference to be held at Lancaster University on 12 and 13 September 2013. The forthcoming seventieth anniversary of the conclusion of the Second World War offers an invitation to gender historians to consider how their approaches to the history of the War have introduced, contributed to, and reshaped understandings of the significance of the War and its impact across space and time, on men and women.
We are pleased to announce that the key note lecture on ‘Gender, Grief and Mourning in Wartime’ will be offered by Dr Lucy Noakes (University of Brighton)
We invite papers on all aspects of wartime gender history, with a particular interest in ensuring wide global and thematic coverage, including such as issues as political representation, employment practices, combat, propaganda, popular culture, sexual activity, legislation, disability and commemoration. A selection of papers will be included in an edited collection to appear in Palgrave Macmillan's 'Gender and History' series. If you unable to attend the conference but would like to be considered for the edited volume, please contact the conference organisers. Proposals from postgraduate, postdoctoral and early career researchers are very welcome.
Abstracts or panel proposals should be sent to both Dr Corinna Peniston-Bird (Lancaster University) (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr Emma Vickers (Liverpool John Moores University) (E.L.Vickers@ljmu.ac.uk) by Friday 3 May 2013.
