Theme: Doing Gender History: Methods and Models

This conference will explore the shape and content of gender history – moving
beyond men's history (traditional ) history and women's history to develop a
new holistic paradigm that includes and values the actions/experiences and
ideas of both men and women. We ask: How do we do gender history? What would
it look like? Do we have specific examples of doing gender history?
