13th European Social Science History Conference

The ESSHC Sexuality Network is inviting paper and panel proposals for its biennial meeting in 2020. Founded in 1998, the Sexuality Network is Europe’s oldest and only recurrent forum for the presentation of new work in the history of sexualities from around the globe. It brings together both junior and senior scholars of sexual history from a wide range of countries, and is neither restricted to European topics, nor to European historians.

More info to come. From the call for papers:

In recognition of the growing need for non-Western, transnational, transcontinental and global perspectives, the 2020 edition is especially interested in papers and panels that focus on exchanges, networks and developments across cultural and international borders. In recognition of the need to understand gender beyond the binary, the Network also encourages ground-breaking work on trans, intersex, and non-binary gender history in previously unstudied contexts and settings.

In composing the programme, the Network organizers will base their selection on the following criteria: empirical grounding, originality, a comparative or transnational focus, geographic spread and panel coherence. They will also strive for a good balance between early career researchers and established scholars, and the latter are encouraged to bring their doctoral students along. Please note that participation in the conference is becoming increasingly competitive and that we regret we can only accommodate as many papers as we there are slots available.

The deadline for pre-registration of a paper or session proposal on our website is 15 April 2019.
