Gender and European History Colloquium, 18 May 2015

Colleagues may be interested to hear about the inaugural Gender and European History Colloquium taking place on May 18 at the University of Sheffield.

In collaboration with the Centre for Gender Studies in Europe, our PG members Nina Schmidt and Cyd Sturgess, alongside our treasurer Caroline Bland, have organised an afternoon of talks and discussions on the theme: ‘Gender and European History’. The event will include a series of papers that explore the implications of gender within historical research, and a break-out reading session focused on twentieth century German contexts and its various waves of feminism.

Attendance is free, but please register your interest with Cyd Sturgess (gea08cjs@sheffield.ac.uk) by May 1. Registration for the whole or parts of the day possible. If you register to attend the workshop, you will automatically receive the preparatory reading.
