Call for Book Proposals: 'The Body, Gender and Culture' series

As the new Series Editor for The Body, Gender and Culture book series published with Pickering & Chatto, I welcome proposals for monographs or edited essay collections from established scholars and first-time authors alike. This series moves beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries within gender and sexuality studies and cultural history, and explores how factors such as religion, environment, social constraints, law, work, leisure, economics and medicine bear upon the human body.

Today in New Jersey history - February 17

 

[From Joseph Bilby, author of "On This Day in New Jersey History"]
 

February 17, 2007: New Jersey’s state government announced that it would recognize same-sex couples’ civil unions.

February 17, 2012: Governor Chris Christie vetoed the Marriage Equality Act passed by both houses of the state legislature. When a state court ruled in favor of marriage equality in 2013, Christie appealed the decision to the New Jersey Supreme Court, but dropped his appeal on October 21, 2013.
