Papers are invited for this special panel at ‘Return to Gender’, the forthcoming graduate conference at the University of Glasgow on 25th November, 2006.

How might we envisage gender utopias/dystopias in the later 21st century? How has technological/scientific research opposed or contributed to the existence of gendered power structures? Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

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?
