Event Details

More Info:

The organizers of the Boston Seminar on the History of Women, Gender, & Sexuality could not be more excited by the series we have to offer you this year. This longstanding collaboration between the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America at the Radcliffe Institute and the Massachusetts Historical Society has yielded five sessions in 2018-2019: a discussion of a work-in-progress and four panel presentations.


Fall sessions will take place in the Knafel Center at the Radcliffe Institute: the panels “Reproducing Race in the Early Americas” and “Transgender History and Archives: An Interdisciplinary Conversation.” In January, we’ll meet at the MHS to consider an essay by Sonia Gomez of the University of Chicago on American Red Cross “bride schools” in Japan following WWII. February will find us back at Radcliffe for the panel “Feminist Economics” before we conclude the year at the MHS to consider “The Long 19th Amendment.” Light refreshments and the opportunity for informal networking will follow each program.


Attendance is free and open to everyone, though we ask you to email us and reserve a place at each session. Subscribers who remit $20 for the year will receive online access to any pre-circulated materials via a password-protected interface. Pre-circulated materials will be available to non-subscribers who have RSVP’d for a session on the Monday prior to the program. Subscribers help to underwrite the cost of planning and presenting this free series, including the reception that follows each program.


RSVP for individual sessions at or by phoning 617-646-0579.
