CFP: Feminist Futures and Premodern Pasts: Global History in Perspective (AHA 2024: San Francisco, January 4-7)

We invite proposals for the SMFS-sponsored panel at 2024 the American Historical Association conference: Feminist Futures and Premodern Pasts: Global History in Perspective.

The panel will cover topics from textbook authorship and source editing to course design and in-class strategies. Teaching nuanced history from a feminist perspective can face challenges from administrators and students, but also speak to students’ desire to understand the relevance of history to how they confront the future in an uncertain present. Strategies of feminist pedagogy include ways of helping students from diverse backgrounds engage with emotionally challenging content. The panel is designed to appeal to historians of all specialties with interests in feminist praxis and global history, and to encourage the inclusion of premodern history in thematic survey courses.

Abstracts would be due to Lucy Barnhouse (Conferences Officer) by Wednesday, February 8. Please feel free to contact Lucy with any questions at
