I am hoping to propose a panel for the Conference on Citizenship Studies at Wayne State University in March-April 2016. The conference is focused on Gender, Sexuality, and Citizenship, and my paper on "urban homesteading programs" and squatter activism in American cities in the 1970s and 1980s analyzes competing assertions of (gendered and racialized) citizenship and homeownership among policymakers and squatter activists. Any proposals that relate temporally or thematically are welcome, as are interested potential chairs/moderators.
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.

The 2016 annual meeting of the Agricultural History Society will explore the always mutually dependent, sometimes amicable and often tendentious relationship between urban and rural spaces through the conference theme “Town and Country”; and what better place to do so than in New York City? Long the United States’ foremost city, New York is a metropolis built in part on agriculture.
The American Antiquarian Society (AAS) invites applications for its 2016-17 visiting academic fellowships. Over thirty short-term fellowships will be awarded for periods of one to two months.
