The SIS Congress is a venue for discussing the most current research topics, approaches and interpretations on women’s and gender history. This edition pays special attention to comparative and interdisciplinary analyses as well as extra- and transnational perspectives across a broad period of time – from antiquity to the present. The Congress aims to assess the state of research on women’s and gender history and to give visibility to emerging research perspectives in the field. SIS invites scholars from Italy and other countries to submit proposals relating to a wide array of historical, geographical, environmental, political, social, and cultural contexts.
