The Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation invites proposals for papers to be presented at its “UNTAMED: Women and the Law” symposium to be held September 13-14, 2019 at Jamestown Settlement in Williamsburg, Virginia. The symposium will examine the history of women in America, from pre-colonial times to today, through the lens of the law.

Proposals for “Untamed: Women and the Law” should explore a topic related to the women’s legal status or legal issues in America. Topics might include the evolution of laws governing women and marriage, family, education, work, healthcare, civil rights, politics and the intersection of gender with identity categories of race, class, sexuality, age and ability.
