The ESSHC Women and Gender network invites proposals for individual papers and sessions – of 3-4 speakers, a chair and a commentator – focusing on interconnections between women, gender and risk in human histories and experiences. The organisers would like to discuss the following issues during our forthcoming conference:

  • How gender impacts experiences of risk for different categories of people in human history;
  • How do we use theory & methods in times of stress and what role do historians play;
  • Need to revisit the figure of learning from history: gender, education and workplace;
  • Gender-based violence in situations of crisis;
  • Women and epidemic/epidemiology;
  • Global and Asian perspectives on epidemics, women’s work and situations of crisis;
  • Evaluation of women researcher’s work;
  • Women’s movements and their roles in crisis;
  • Women’s Labour: triple burden?
  • Gender-sensitive management of crisis situations;
  • Gender-sensitive response to risk.

The Women and Gender network encourages global and comparative perspectives on gender and risk. Please, send your proposals by 15 May 2021 at pre-registering on the ESSHC website (Link). The 14th European Social Science History Conference is organized by the International Institute of Social History in cooperation with the University of Gothenburg.
