Friday Evening, November 17

Saturday, 18 November, 2006
Trinity College, Dublin

Hosted by
The Centre for Gender and Women's Studies

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?

The animal is something of a hot topic right now: MLA 2006 will
boast no less than three panels
devoted in some way to it. So much of what is being said and done on
the topic, however, is
framed by the question: what is the animal for the human. That is,
this work directly follows
the paradigm set down by Giorgio Agamben in his book L'aperto:
L'uomo e l'animale (2002),
taking the animal to constitute the human. This panel asks: Is there
another way to understand
the animal? And can we find that way (or indeed, ways) in the
eighteenth century?

Please send Abstracts for proposed papers, along with a brief CV, to:
tcbrown_at_umn.edu.

Narrative Conference
March 15-18, 2007
Washington, D.C.

For a proposed panel at the 2007 Narrative Conference, I am seeking
papers that explore situations in which the strict distinction
between narrator and author begins to blur. What are the conditions
for and significances of such moments?

Proposals should include 1) a 300-word abstract, 2) a brief vitae
(for panel proposal purposes). Please send proposals (in the body of
email or as Microsoft Word attachment) to Sue Kim at suekim_at_uab.edu
by October 1, 2006.
