General theme: “Pluralism and Community: Social Science History Perspectives” (see specific CfP attached)

Dear (past and present) SSHA participants,
It’s a new year and time to put your panels together. Believe it or not but the submission deadline for this year’s SSHA conference is just around the corner! Please find an array of Women, Gender and Sexuality themes below (in no specific order). Wonderful if you organize a panel on one of the themes proposed. Please note that they are mere suggestions. You may submit panels and/or papers on any theme of your interest. As a reminder: The location of Baltimore/Washington, DC offers exceptional opportunities for collaboration with scholars from one of the many regional universities.

Reminder: a full panel should have a chair and discussant and four presenters (four papers, though five presenters/papers is okay as well). The presenters should come from more than one discipline and ideally the members of the panel should be at different stages of their careers.

We very much look forward to your submissions. Please don’t hesitate to ask for our help.
