The History and Gender Workshop is an interdisciplinary workshop which fosters intellectual dialogue and common interests based on gender. Founded in fall 2011, the History and Gender Workshop highlights the History Department’s strength and expertise in gender history. At the University of Georgia, thinking about gender historically generates interest across many departments; we often work with scholars in Women’s Studies, English, Romance Languages, Art History, Germanic and Slavic Studies, Sociology, Anthropology, Theater, and Social Work.
Our activities include the sponsoring of talks by eminent visiting scholars, such as Regina Morantz-Sanchez (University of Michigan), Sarah Haley (UCLA), Jennifer Heuer (University of Massachusetts, Amherst), and Tara Zahra (University of Chicago). We also conduct faculty and graduate student presentations of new research intended for publication and host professional development workshops to help faculty and graduate students address gender history in their classes—regardless of temporal or geographic focus.
