Gender remains an important concept in historical enquiry. This two-day conference will explore gender (both masculine and feminine) in domestic, national and imperial contexts. This conference invites postgraduates and academics to consider gender within these confines from the eighteenth century to the present day. The first day will provide postgraduate and academics early in their career to present papers in an informal and constructive environment. The second day will be dedicated to papers and a roundtable discussion by academics who have made substantial contribution to this field (please see website for more details). 200-300 word proposals and a brief biography should be sent by Friday 27th April.
