12th Berkshire Conference on the History of Women
"Local Knowledge -- Global Knowledge"
Location: Connecticut, United States
Call for Papers Date: 2000-12-15


The 12th Berkshire Conference on the History of Women, "Local Knowledge --
Global Knowledge," will be held June 6-9, 2002 at the University of
Connecticut in Storrs, Connecticut, USA. The Program Committee welcomes
proposals that explore the relationship between local knowledge, global
knowledge, the history of women, and the emergence of notions of gender
across time and culture. How have people reconfigured their ideas and
representations to take account of expanding -- or contracting -- worlds,
changing economic conditions, and new demands for labor? What are the
specific challenges to historians of women posed by indigeneity,
nationalism, imperialism and ethnicity? What is the relation between what
we can know about women in any local situation and what we can know about
women broadly and comparatively? The Committee particularly encourages
submissions in earlier periods, those which address sources and
methodology, and panels that break down the divide between "the west"
(North America and Western Europe) and other regions of the world. Funding
may be available for some international panelists.

We prefer complete panels, normally three papers, a comment and a chair;
one person should not assume the task of chair and comment. The Committee
also seeks workshops, roundtables, teaching sessions, and presentations
that depart from the traditional conference format. Individual papers will
also be considered. The Committee may rearrange submissions to shape the
program; submission of a proposal will indicate agreement with this
proviso. No one may appear on the program more than once in any capacity.

Please submit three (3) copies of the full proposal, postmarked by Decembe=
r
15, 2000 to the appropriate program co-chair. Each proposal must include a
standard cover sheet, downloadable from our website, listing panel title o=
r
roundtable theme and full contact information (address, phone, fax and
e-mail) for panel organizer and all participants. It must also include a
title and one-page abstract for each paper or presentation; a one-page
curriculum vitae/resum=C8 for each participant (including the chair and
comment); and a self-addressed, stamped postcard.
