We are pleased to announce the 2019-2020 schedule for the Gender and History in the Americas seminar series. Please note that seminars this year will not be held in the usual venue at the Institute of Historical Research -- they will be held at the Women's Library at the LSE instead. We remain grateful to the IHR and to the Women's Library for their support. All seminars will begin at 5.15pm, and will run for an hour and a quarter.
