Gender & History in the Americas seminars

SHAW sponsors a seminar series held at the Institute of Historical Research during academic term time, with each seminar held on the first Monday of the month at 17.30 in the Peter Marshall Room. The series offers a forum for speakers to present research investigating women’s and gender history from a hemispheric perspective that stretches from Canada to Argentina, Mexico to the Caribbean.  The convenors aim to offer a series in which new and cutting-edge ideas can be shared and discussed in an intellectual and supportive environment.peter-marshall-room

The convenors are members of SHAW, but we also welcome interest from UK-based colleagues in related disciplines who may wish to join the convening team. If you have queries about the seminar series, please e-mail us at

All the information can be found on the IHR’s seminar page.

The new programme for 2018 will be available here shortly. Please note there will be no seminar on 4 December.

Some previous seminars are also available as a podcast.
