Seminar sessions are held on Fridays from 3 pm to 5 pm at the Newberry, 60 West Walton Street, Chicago, Illinois.
This seminar explores diverse topics and genres—such as race/ethnicity, biography, war, religion, family, and sexuality—through the prisms of women and/or gender. The focus is on the United States and North America across all time periods; however, some papers focus on non-American aspects of the history of women and gender.
The seminar’s co-sponsors are the history departments of DePaul University, Northeastern Illinois University, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the Karla Scherer Center for the Study of American Culture at the University of Chicago.
Each year, the seminar accepts proposals for papers from March until May 1. The 2016-2017 call-for-proposals will be posted March 1, 2016. To propose a paper, please review our proposal instructions and submit all materials via webform.
