Lilith: A Feminist History Journal – Biannual Symposium Call for Papers

Lilith: A Feminist History Journal is seeking submissions for our next biannual symposium, ‘Blood, Sweat and Cheers’: A Long Journey to Equity? on 15 September 2017 at Ship Inn, hosted by Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research, Griffith University.

The symposium is intended to celebrate and build upon the academic scholarship which explores women in historically male-dominated spheres, such as police, military, medicine and academia, governance and executive leadership positioned within the centre of feminist historical analysis. It will explore how gendered norms are reflected, reinscribed and contested through perceptions of women, physical and psychological, and encourage consideration of new methods and sources for studying the long standing moral construct of women as God’s police.

Submissions for the symposium must be received by 10 August 2017. For further details please follow this link.
