The Tenth Nordic Conference in Gender history
Bergen, 8.-12. August 2012

Call for papers and sessions

The Tenth Nordic Conference in Gender History will take place in
Bergen, Norway, 8-12. August 2012. The organizing committee hereby
invites you to propose papers and sessions for the conference. 

Research in gender history has had a tremendous growth since the
first Nordic conference was arranged at Lysebu in 1983. This is
reflected in the main themes we suggest for the tenth (a jubilee!)
conference. We hope all interested researchers will find topics of
interest in the main themes, but we will also welcome suggestions
from for those of you who want to arrange sessions or give papers on
themes not suggested in this call. The main themes will be treated
both in plenary and parallel sessions, panels and roundtables,
depending on the number of papers and how they fit thematically.  It
is possible to organize other sessions, panels or roundtables on
suggested themes by the conference participants.

The organizing committee suggests the following three main themes for
the conference: 

1.	The biological turn – a challenge for gender history?
