As we enter 2014, we are aware that the clock on the SSHA conference submissions is ticking! The deadline is February 14.
It was wonderful to see so many of you in Chicago at this year's SSHA conference. As you know, the success of the SSHA conference depends on you! The three of us work to put together the best possible program but only AFTER you develop the interesting and fascinating panels that are the strength of our conference.
Please consider proposing panels that fit under the broad umbrella of our network women, gender & sexuality. If you like more specific guidance, the general topic of the conference is "Inequalities: Politics, Policy and the Past" (see http://www.ssha.org/pdfs/SSHA_2014_CFP.pdf). In addition, topics raised at this year's network meeting included: welfare states in emergent economies; the intersection between politics of feminism and the politics of austerity; gender-differentiated experiences of growing up; sexual regulation in queer theories, feminist theories, and welfare state scholarship; feminist, gender-specific and queer forms of resistance such as slutwalk, pussyriot or the Femen movement; the politics of the “private” in a place/space/gender/sexuality perspective; intersectionality in comparative perspective; the divergent experiences of queer life and the erosion of neighborhood based places and institutions or the disappearance of queer spaces; older women and the politics of desire or age, gender & sexuality; anniversaries such as the 1964 U.S. Civil Rights Act or 1914 WWI.
These are suggestions only – we are happy to consider all themes that fit within our network. You may also submit a book session, which involves a chair, book author, and three or four discussants, or a discussion table session where authors will give brief introductions to their work, followed by a discussion with four or five junior and senior scholars.
The deadline for submissions is February 14, 2014! For instructions on how to upload panel and individual paper proposals please go to: http://www.ssha.org/conference-submission.
As in previous years, we anticipate a large number of submissions and we will try to accommodate as many panels as we can. It helps greatly, if your panel proposals include a chair and discussant. In addition, we encourage you to bring together 4-5 paper presenters. Feel free to submit individual papers but those have a smaller chance of being accepted. If you have ideas for panels and need advice on bringing in more scholars, please do not hesitate to contact us. We might be able to put you in contact with others.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Very best wishes – Anna, You Yenn and Dominique
