The Symposium on Gender, History, and Sexuality provides an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of historical approaches to the study of gender and sexuality. We hope to build a community of scholars working together to consider the benefits and challenges of incorporating these issues into their research. We do not see gender and sexuality as narrowly defined topics and seek presenters who engage with a wide variety of subjects, methodologies, and approaches. The Symposium aims to explore the creative and scholarly potential of gender and sexuality as fields of inquiry.
We encourage diverse styles of presentation, including informal talks about research experience and/or primary sources, workshops that focus on a work-in-progress, critical discussion of a selection of readings, and formal presentations of conference papers or dissertation chapters. In addition to individual presentations, we accept panel discussions to contribute various perspectives of gender studies. During the Spring 2021 semester, the Symposium will host all presentations on Zoom. Those interested in attending can register here.
