REMINDER: CFP: Gustav Vasa Seminar and Summer School: Gender & Economy
Reminder: Proposals for the Gustav Vasa Seminar: Gender & Economy (June 15-16) and applications for the Gender & Economy Summer School in Social Science History (June 13-14) are welcome until April 12, 2022.

In historical research, different roles of sexes / genders in society have long been debated. In the study of economic and business history, gender has become a more prominent topic only relatively recently. Therefore, the economy and its agents in the past still appear very masculine. Outside women´s work and labor market participation, the role of women in the economy and, more generally, the impact of gender on economic opportunities and performance have only begun to find their way as objects of historical research. When a gender perspective has been applied to economic and business history research, many interesting recent findings have been made about how gender roles have affected both men and women's economic opportunities, either by limiting or enabling action.

Additionally, many established assumptions have been challenged: it has been shown how women were active participants in the early modern credit markets as lenders, borrowers, savers, and investors and played an important role in family businesses. Similarly, women were also politically active and aimed to secure their own economic interests in the political arena. What these studies have in common is to overcome the problem of silence in the original sources telling about female economic agency.

The theme of the 2022 Annual Gustav Vasa Seminar is Gender and Economy. It is through this conference that we aim to further promote this debate about gender in the economy. We welcome presentations on a wide range of topics addressing any era, region, and economic and business history theme or labor history from a gender history perspective. We encourage but do not limit participants to consider what the role of gender in the economy has been at different times, in different societies and communities, and what have been the opportunities and barriers for men and women as economic actors. The keynote lecture will be given by Professor Anne E. C. McCants (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, United States).

Proposals (both individual papers and three to four-paper panels) are welcome until April 12, 2022. Decisions on papers submitted will be made and sent out on April 22, 2022 at the latest. Please, submit your proposal via conference website. A proposal for an individual paper should be 200-400 words and for panels in total 300-600 words including the headings of each paper. For further information, please contact gustavvasa-seminar[at]jyu.fi.

The Gustav Vasa Seminar, named after the Swedish King Gustav Vasa (1496-1560), has been organized since 2003 at the Department of History and Ethnology, University of Jyväskylä. The conference and its annually varying topics have brought together a large group of scholars to discuss their top research interests in the summery Lake District of Finland.

Summer School

We invite graduate students using the methods of social science history to attend a two-day summer school in Jyväskylä in June 2022. The summer school will address the challenges of research design for methods in social science history, especially in relation to topics on gender and economy.

We offer postgraduate students the opportunity to develop their knowledge of research methods and to test methodological choices in their dissertation research with top researchers and teachers in the field.

The summer school consists of a workshop, lectures on methods, and individual guidance. We expect each participant to prepare a paper in advance reflecting on their own methodological choices. The paper may be intended as part of the dissertation manuscript or it a separate presentation. The course will moreover introduce literature for participants to explore. Our social program will enable you to discover our city and its beautiful surroundings.

The teacher at the summer school is Professor Anne E. C. McCants (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, United States) along with teachers of the Department of History and Ethnology at the University of Jyväskylä.

Applications are welcome until April 12, 2022. Decisions on applications submitted will be sent out on April 22, 2022 at the latest. Please, submit your proposal via conference website. An application letter (400-500 words) includes a brief description of your methodological choices and challenges, a short personal introduction (CV) including the phase of your doctoral dissertation and name of your supervisor(s), and a short abstract (150-200 words) of your research topic. For further information, please contact gustavvasa-seminar[at]jyu.fi.
