CFP: Gender and Governmentality (Event: Chicago 11/2010); DL: 01.02.2010

Social Science History Association 2010 Meeting (Web)35th Annual Meeting
Dear Colleagues, I am working to construct a session for the 2010 Social Science History Association meeting (Chicago, 18-21 November) around Gender and Governmentality. There are currently two papers attached to the session, one analyzing the transmission of early modern, cameralist concepts through economics, sociology, and bureaucratic initiative into the modern German welfare state, and one on about the Hindu Code bill fight in India just following independence. We are open to other potential papers with any chronological or geographic scope that engage with „gendering“ the Foucauldian concept of governmentality.
This year’s conference theme is „Politics and Power,“ and more information about it and the association may be found at The deadline for submissions is February 15 and we would like to finalize this session by February 1. Please reply to me off-list at if you are interested in joining such a session. Thanks, Marynel Ryan Van Zee
