The Bedford Centre for the History of Women at Royal Holloway, University of London, is pleased to announce its inaugural conference ‘Rethinking Gender: New Perspective and Future Directions’ being held on Saturday, 10 of June 2017 at Royal Holloway. The conference aims to spark discussion regarding the current scholarship, as we move towards a more fluid and multifaceted understanding of gender, and explore the future direction of the field. We hope that the conference will open a platform for researchers in the early stages of their careers working on multiple aspects of gender that have previously been marginalised or overlooked.

We are pleased to announce that the keynote for this one-day conference will be given by Dr. Justin Bengry (Birkbeck, University of London). Dr. Justin Bengry is the founder and Editor of NOTCHES blog and a Research Fellow whose work focuses on England’s LGBTQ+ heritage and the history of sexuality. He is currently working on a monograph entitled ‘The Pink Pound: Capitalism and Homosexuality in Twentieth-Century Britain’.

We welcome proposals from researchers from all historical backgrounds, and we particularly invite submissions from postgraduate and early career researchers working in the fields of gender history and associated disciplines. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

§  Sexuality

§  The body and related ideas of identity

§  LGBTQ+ histories

§  Emotional history

§  National/Racial histories

§  Femininities/masculinities

§  Expressions of gender

Please submit abstracts of 200-300 words to bedfordconference@gmail.com by 8 April 2017.
