CFP: Women, Gender and Legal History at Chicago-Kent

[Via H-Net, we have the following Call for Papers.]

The Chicago-Kent Institute for Law and the Humanities and the Chicago-Kent Law Review are sponsoring a conference on the history of women, gender, and the law. This one day conference will take place on October 14, 2011 at Chicago-Kent College of Law.

We are seeking papers which discuss from a historical perspective issues involving women, gender, and the law. Topics can span time periods, geographies, and disciplines. Please submit abstracts to Professor Felice Batlan at Speakers will be requested to contribute a short written piece to the Chicago-Kent Law Review. All speakers will be reimbursed for expenses. The first conference on women’s legal history took place at the University of Akron in 2007 and we hope this conference will be the second in a continuing tradition.
