The Symposium on Gender, History, and Sexuality is currently looking for graduate students and faculty members interested in presenting their works that critically engage the topics of gender, women, and sexuality.
Though the History Department is the primary sponsor of the symposium, we are committed to developing a broad community of individuals who employ the study of gender and sexuality in their work. To this end we encourage and seek the participation of individuals from a variety of disciplines who find that these topics emerge in their works. There are a variety of opportunities available for presenters from an informal presentation about research experience and/or primary sources, a workshop that focuses on a work-in-progress, or to a formal presentation of a conference paper or dissertation chapter.
In the past, presenters have discussed such diverse topics as the religious imagery of Eva Peron, cosmopolitanism and French women’s travels in the nineteenth century, butch dykes of the ancient world, gendered politics and victims’ rights in Texas criminal justice, and masculinity in the American West.
We are currently looking for individuals to present their work.
If you are interested in presenting at the 2013-2014 Symposium, please contact the Symposium Co-Coordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org and attach a short abstract (200 words max) of your project or presentation. The Symposium on Gender, History, and Sexuality usually meets every other Friday from 12-2.
