We seek scholars working on gender and violence for a round-table session at the Berkshire Conference on the History of Women, in Toronto, Canada, May 22-25, 2014. This round-table proposal will be submitted under the theme: Law, Family Entanglements, Courts, Criminality, and Prisons.
We are interested in research that focuses on politicized engagements with, or challenges to, State management of and/or control over violence. Examples include feminist and/or queer jurisprudence, pro- or anti-violence social movement practices, and may include representations of violence and/or anti-violence in popular media. In order to broaden the scope of the round-table, we are particularly interested in scholars whose research focuses on places and/or populations outside the U.S.
Please send a 200-word abstract and a cv to Lisa Arellano (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Amanda Frisken (email@example.com).
