WOMEN, GENDER AND RISK

The ESSHC Women and Gender network invites proposals for individual papers and sessions (3-4 speakers, a chair and a commentator) focusing on interconnections between women, gender and risk in human histories and experiences. We 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 April 2022 at pre-registering on the ESSHC website here: https://esshc.socialhistory.org/conference/user/pre-registration
