La storia di genere: percorsi, intrecci, prospettive / Gender History: Paths, Intersections

Published on 2 November 2020 par Institut du genre

The 8th Conference of the Italian Association of Women Historians will be held in Verona from June 10 to 12, 2021 at the University of Verona (either virtually or socially distanced subject to government Covid-19 advice and regulations at that time).
As in the past, the SIS is aiming to make the conference an opportunity to compare and discuss studies, topics and interpretational categories related to the history of women and gender with particular attention to recent scholarly trends from a multi-disciplinary perspective.
The SIS is therefore inviting historians, women and men, Italians and non-Italians to submit proposals for panels dealing with topics embedded in a wide chronology – from antiquity to the contemporary world – and referring to the most various geo-political and cultural contexts. The conference aims to provide both a picture of the current state of scholarship in the history of women and gender and also a space for emerging perspectives in gender studies. We particularly appreciate proposals that adopt a diachronic perspective dealing with different historical contexts and geographic regions and using historiographic approaches that compare local, national, transnational and/or global situations.

In addition to Italian, the conference languages will be English, French and Spanish.

Deadline for submissions : November 30, 2020
