Women, State and Nation: Creating Gendered Identities
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
The Women’s History Network is open to anyone with a passion for researching, writing, reading and sharing women’s history. Our 21st international conference will this year focus on the relationship between women and the state. The conference will explore the processes of nation-building and consider the extent to which national identities have been gendered. We will examine women as citizens, women’s interaction and relationships with the state and the female or gendered imagining of the nation. The themes of the conference are broad to encourage as wider a discussion as possible from a range of historical perspectives. Papers will consider the role of women and the impact of gender across all time-spans, regions and nations.
The plenary speakers are:
- Dr Padma Anagol (Cardiff Univeristy), " In the interest of the nation ": Women's role and participation in the birth of the Hindu Right in colonial India
- Professor Mineke Bosch (University of Groningen), National Suffrage Spectacle and Transnational Transfer: A Comparison of British and Dutch Suffrage Activism
- Professor Elsa Barkley-Brown (University of Maryland), On Play and Citizenship: African American Women and the Undisciplined Body.
