47th Annual Meeting of the Social Science History Association

Philadelphia, PA, November 11-14, 2021*

Submission Deadline: March 16, 2021

*we will also consider complete online panels


Because of the SSHA 2020 conference cancellation, we are encouraging all colleagues to resubmit panels and papers to the online system.  On the conference website, you find last year’s submissions preloaded so that you can edit as necessary and re-submit. 


New submissions or adaptions of submitted papers are very welcome.


We encourage submissions inspired by the general conference theme “Crisis, Conjunctures, Turning Points: Theory and Method in Turbulent Times,” that engage research on women, gender, and sexuality. 

Possible themes include, but are not limited to “Histories of Women, Gender and Sexuality as Forms of Critique,” “Perspectives on Crises and Turning Points,” Political Violence, Populisms, and The Media,”  and “Health and Care Crises.”


Please visit our submission portal  to submit a paper or session proposal by March 16, 2021.
