Reconsidering Gender, Violence and the State
Radical History Review 126
As emerging scholarship in feminist and queer history makes clear, archives contain surprising histories about gender, sexuality and violence, stories that challenge axiomatic, gendered oppositions of power and vulnerability. This issue of Radical History Review hopes to explore these histories, and reassess conflicting narratives of victimization, subjection, retaliation and self-defense in the context of forms of state authority.
The editor of the Immigration and Etnic History Newsletter, a biannual publication of the Immigration and Ethnic History Society, is seeking historiographic contributions (1500-1800 words) for upcoming issues. Articles providing background on recent research in fields related to American immigration history are welcome; interested parties should email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
