Call For Papers

Women’s History special issue on “Documents in Women’s History” (to be publishe in summer 2017).

Edited by Marie Ruiz (Université Paris Diderot, LARCA) and Mélanie Grué (Université Paris-Est Créteil Val de Marne, IMAGER)

The deadline for submission of articles is June 1, 2016

Historians face a difficult task when dealing with historical documents, testimonials revealing or concealing “truth.” As objects of enquiry, documents, sometimes limited in what they can disclose, have very often resisted historians’ intentions to show “reality.” This is even more vivid in the context of women’s history, a subjected topic that has undergone invisibility through male domination. In “Policing Truth” (1994), Leigh Gilmore argues that the notion of truth is intertwined with the notion of gender: man is a judge who has historically defined the rules and standards of truth in order to perpetuate patriarchal authority and male privilege.



Theme: “Thinking and Talking About Women, Genders, and Sexualities Inside and Outside the Academy”

New Deadline for the Submission of Proposals: February 5, 2016
Conference Dates: June 1-4, 2017
Location: Hofstra University, Hempstead, New York (Outside New York City).

Women’s history has undergone enormous shifts since the First Berkshire conference, recasting dominant historical narratives and pioneering new ideas and methodologies. Fresh ideas about the very category of “women,” innovative studies of the body, new analyses of sexuality, trans-regional and transnational scholarship have transformed understandings of history. We now stand at a critical crossroads rich with possibilities for exciting innovations in research and teaching in this field.
