Proposals are invited for the Pre-Conference to the 44th Annual Meeting of the Social Science History Association (SSHA), to take place at the University of Arizona in Tucson, November 7, 2018 (arrival on November 6), on the theme of Border Crossings: Gender, Sexuality, and Right.

The pre-conference theme is inspired by Gloria Anzaldúa’s seminal contributions to Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies and will give us the opportunity to engage with the geographical location of the conference.

While the pre-conference organizers encourage contributions related to regional themes of borders and borderlands, histories of rebellious actions, and mobilization for rights (widely defined), they will be happy to consider papers or panels from all geographical regions that address related themes, offer new theoretical frameworks, and present materials that allow audiences to compare, contrast, and illustrate the complexity of rights (including, but not limited to legal concepts of gender/sexual power and norms, international/national dimensions of social/cultural/political/legal constructs of human rights, refugees and power/empowerment) as well as border crossings (including but not limited to the complexities of physical trespassing of nation-state borders, cultural ruptures, gendered and sexual transgressions).

Please note that presenters and participants are invited to arrive on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 for an informal reception; conference organizers plan to offer one night at a hotel to conference presenters preceding the one-day conference on Wednesday, November 7, 2018.



Organizers will accept papers and panels and plan to collaborate with Arizona faculty.

Proposals should include title/abstract of each presentation (about 300 words) and presenter’s current CV.

Submission Deadline: February 16, 2018

Please submit all pre-conference panels and papers directly to Network Reps:

Dominique Grisard

Jadwiga E. Pieper Mooney

Martin Gössl


Please direct any questions to the Network Reps.
