The Programming Committee for the Third Annual Graduate Symposium
on Women's and Gender History, a multi-disciplinary conference at the
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, announces a Call for Papers.
The Symposium, which is intended to kick off the activities on campus in
celebration of Women's History Month, is scheduled for March 7-9, 2002.
To celebrate and encourage further work in the field of women's and
gender history, we invite submissions from graduate students from any
institution or discipline on any topic in women's or gender history. We
welcome papers on any historical subject that might grow out of a variety
of disciplines and engage an equal diversity of methodologies. We also
welcome panel submissions, which should include three papers united
by a common theme or geographical/chronological focus, although the
three papers will be judged on their individual merits. We also invite
interested graduate students to provide commentary for panels, as well
as professors interested in chairing panels.
Please send 5 copies of a two-page abstract, together with a one-page
curriculum vitae, to the Programming Committee mailbox at the below
address. All submissions must be received by Thursday, November 29,
2001. We regret that we cannot accept any submissions over e-mail. For
more information about the symposium, please visit our website at
