We invite authors from the humanities and social sciences to submit book proposals and manuscripts for our new book series in Intercultural Transfer Studies. We seek manuscripts that highlight the interconnected nature of the modern world since the fifteenth century. Book proposals and manuscripts should focus on the processes of intercultural contacts and transfers that shaped human societies and cultures. The intercultural transfer paradigm allows us to study phenomena within the space these phenomena created, and which cuts across national spaces.
H-Women's purpose is to enable historians more easily to discuss research interests, teaching methods, and the state of the field and historiography of women's studies. H-Women is especially interested in methods of teaching history to graduate and undergraduate students in diverse settings.

Please excuse for cross-posting. Seeking two-three additional papers and a Chair for the 2018 Society for the Study of American Women Writers (SSAWW) Conference.
