We are organizing a panel that explores the importance of appearance and physique in the workplace. We are seeking a participant and commentator for a panel at the Big Berks 2020.
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.
Laurie Bertram and I are looking for additional participants for panel we’re looking to pitch to the Berks entitled “Race, Borderlands and Sex Work.”
The Boston Seminar on Modern American History Presents:
Carceral Culture - a panel discussion
Seeking one to three additional participants plus a commentator for a lightning round at the Big Berks in summer 2020. We currently have four presenters addressing the uses and abuses of privacy for predominantly white, Eastern women: looking at domestic violence and privacy in one wealthy family; exploring female laudanum habits; one elite woman's struggles with managing a household in her husband's absence; and how New York legislators debated the government's role in the regulation of marriage.
