Call for papers - Disciplining the Modern Family: Gender, State, and Society

With the rise of the modern nation-state, the interest in the family as an institution and in its functions in modern life expanded as well. Rulers, bureaucrats, revolutionaries, writers, and readers all looked to mobilize families and individual family members to their goals.  Approaches to the family varied greatly: some perceived it as the torchbearer of traditional values and practices that must be protected from new perceptions of self and society; others saw it as a site for the promotion of social and cultural reforms.

Re: Announcing the Judith R. Walkowitz Article Prize

This is wonderful news! Please note that the Pembroke Center's Feminist Theory Archive at Brown University holds the papers of Judith R. Walkowitz and they will be available for research in the near future. The collection is currently unprocessed but should anyone wish to use the Walkowitz papers in the course of their research, they should feel free to contact me pembroke_archives@brown.edu.

Re: Announcing the Judith R. Walkowitz Article Prize

This message is to clarify that the Judith R. Walkowitz Article Prize is an initiative of former students, colleagues, and others who wish to honor Professor Walkowitz’s contributions to British Studies and to the study of gender and sexuality. The NACBS has generously agreed to host and award the prize as described and to serve as a repository for funds committed to the award.
