CFP Berks 2014
We invite 2-3 additional panelists to participate in a 2014 Berks roundtable on how and why we, as historians of women and gender, should and do incorporate science into our teaching and scholarship. We particularly invite scholars who work on topics outside of North America and Western Europe and those who research periods before the 19th century. While many historians of science have been incorporating insights from women’s and gender history into their research and teaching for years (as evidenced by the growing number of panels on women/gender at the annual History of Science Society Annual Meeting and by the HSS’s active Women’s Caucus, for example), historians of women and gender have been slower to incorporate science and the history of science. This panel seeks to probe the boundaries of science, history, and gender— including the boundaries that have marked science as separate from culture and as masculine—and to suggest methods and examples of how and why historians of women and gender might incorporate more history of science into our teaching and scholarship. Interested participants please email a short (not to exceed 250 words) paper abstract and CV to Kimberly Hamlin at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 1st (panel submission deadline is 1/15/13).
