CFP: Work and Gender: A Comparative Session for the 2016 SSHA Annual Conference

Dear Colleagues,
I am a PhD candidate looking to organize a panel for the Labor Network at the Social Science History Association Annual Meeting in Chicago (November 17-20).

I focus on campaigns in higher education from the 1970s through the early 1990s.
