Re: QUERY: Readings/Organizational Suggestions for Gender in Southern History course

Thavolia Glymph, Out of the House of Bondage: The Transformation of the Plantation Household (2008)

A good book on relations between black slaves/white mistresses, and the particular type of violence done by white women. Read this in a graduate history seminar last semester and it was one of the favorites! Very clear writing, a compelling argument, and a good intervention in Southern race/gender histories.

Registration Open - Global History of Violence: Oxford Conference

Registration now open: A Violent World? 

University of Oxford, 29 June – 1 July 2017

This conference brings global approaches to the history of violence, reassessing the nature of violence during the early modern period. Integrating warfare and other crucial forms of large-scale violence with recent scholarship on the history of collective and inter-personal violence, this three-day conference will probe historical assumptions about the limits of violence and its decline during the early modern period.

This week the New York Times published an article concerning an experimenter who applied for work with some "predatory" journals.  Below is a link to the article, accompanied by an earlier article from the New York Times about "predatory" academic conferences.  Finally, there is a link to a blog article on PLOS (the Public Library of Science, a major open-access publisher) that was re-posted this week in response to the first NY Times article.
