CFP: GSA Seminar 2019: Interdisciplinary Community in German Women’s History and Gender Studies (Deadline: January 25, 2019)

It has been over a decade since the authors of Gendering German History (2007) raised two questions: How has gender analysis impacted history writing? To what degree has gender analysis become “mainstream” or remained peripheral in German history, literary, and cultural studies? Over the last decade, historians and German Studies scholars have produced exciting and innovative research that suggests that gender is also uniquely positioned, as a methodological approach, to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration and research.
