Social Science History Association Conference 2012

Women, Gender& Sexuality Network,
Social Science History Association

01.11.2012-04.11.2012, Vancouver, CA

The Women, Gender and Sexuality Network of the Social
Science History Association calls for papers for the 2012
SSHA conference.

The 2012 SSHA conference will be held in Vancouver, British
Columbia, from November 1-4. The conference theme is
"Histories of Capitalism." For more information on the
conference-wide call for papers, and the other networks
please see the SSHA website at

We invite submissions of (preferably) full panels and
individual papers by March 1, 2012.

We are also interested to hear from scholars willing to
volunteer as chair or discussant.

Panels organized around this year’s theme are especially
encouraged, and there are many aspects of this theme that
could be explored from a WGS perspective.

Submissions about the meeting location - Vancouver - are
also welcome, as well any other topics related to social
science history.

The WGS network representatives are
Dominique Grisard dominique.grisard@unibas.ch
Roxana Galusca rgalusca@uchicago.edu and

We are here to help you organize panels, and act as your
