2017 October: Boston Seminar on the History of Women, Gender, and Sexuality, Radcliffe Institute, Cambridge “Panel Discussion: Gender, Sexuality, and the New Labor History”

The Boston Seminar on the History of Women, Gender, & Sexuality is a collaboration of the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America and the Massachusetts Historical Society. This series, whose five meetings in 2017-2018 will alternate between the Radcliffe Institute and the MHS, aims to seed fresh conversations on the history of women, gender, and sexuality in America without chronological limitations. The October panel looks at the “New Labor History,” which is highly gendered, global, and often situated in spaces that are transitory or obscured. This session will consider the new directions that the path-breaking work of the three scholars indicates.
