The Massachusetts Historical Society and the Schlesinger Library of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study are excited to announce the History of Women, Gender, & Sexuality Seminar program for 2017-2018. The first session will take place October 17. Join us at Fay House at Radcliffe for a panel discussion on Gender, Sexuality, and the New Labor History, featuring Anne Balay, Aimee Loiselle, Traci Parker, and Seth Rockman. December 19, Micki McElya examines Miss America and the New Right since 1968, with comment by Genevieve Clutario. Following two more sessions in 2018, we will end the year with a conversation on Women, Gender, and Sexuality in the High School U.S. History Curriculum, featuring high school teachers and history curriculum specialists. Join us to consider rich, compelling scholarship and take part in vibrant discussions that will advance the field and your own work.
More than two dozen Massachusetts Historical Society Research Department seminars have been scheduled for 2017-2018, offered in five series: the Boston Environmental History Seminar, the Boston Area Early American History Seminar, the Modern American Society & Culture Seminar, the New England Biography Seminar, and the Boston Seminar on the History of Women, Gender, & Sexuality, presented in conjunction with the Schlesinger Library of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.
History of Women and Gender sessions start at 5:30 PM and will be held alternately at Fay House, 10 Garden Street in Cambridge, and at the MHS, 1154 Boylston Street in Boston. Sessions will consider a pre-circulated paper and be followed by light refreshments. The programs are free and open to the public, but those who subscribe to the series receive advance access to the papers that will be discussed.
