AHA panel CfP

[from Jacob Melish]

A colleague, Dr. Jungwon Kim at Columbia University, and I are organizing a panel on women and sexuality in the early modern world for the American Historical Association meeting in New York City, Jan. 2-5, 2015. It would be wonderful if a pre-modern Islamic Middle East specialist working within that topic might be able to join us.
