Proposals are invited for participation in this three-day international conference on the history of rape, sexual abuse, and sexual violence. More information is posted below, or you can follow this link: https://www.h-net.org/announce/show.cgi?ID=215395
The conference will bring together scholars working on a range of historical periods and places to explore what may be historically specific about rape, sexual abuse, and other forms of sexual violence in different historical and social/political/cultural/global contexts. We hope to attract participants from a range of disciplines.
We invite proposals for 25-minute papers, for complete panels (containing no more than three papers) or for round-table discussions. Abstracts of no longer than 300-words for each paper, along with a 50-word autobiography for each speaker, should be sent by email to Dr Garthine Walker atHistoricisingRape@cardiff.ac.uk by Monday 27 October 2014. Informal enquiries may also be sent to that address. Applicants will be informed by mid-November of whether their proposal has been accepted.
