The Symposium on Gender, History, and Sexuality is a bi-weekly (Fridays 12-2 p.m.) forum for graduate students and professors to deliver papers and works-in-progress 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.
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. There are a variety of opportunities available — students can choose to give an informal presentation about preliminary research and/or primary sources, discuss a work-in-progress, or get feedback on a formal presentation of a conference paper or dissertation chapter.
In addition, the symposium will be presenting a series of thematic panels based on common areas of interest identified by the participants who respond to this Call for Presenters.
If you would like to participate in the symposium, please contact the symposium committee at email@example.com and briefly outline the nature of your interest.
