Boston Seminar on the History of Women, Gender, & Sexuality


The Furniture of Isaac Vose & Thomas Seymour, 1815 to 1825

Open 11 May to 14 September 2018 Details


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. Some sessions will offer the opportunity to discuss new scholarship presented in pre-circulated essays. These sessions begin with remarks from the essayist and an assigned commentator, after which the discussion is opened to the floor. Other meetings will feature panel discussions and “state of the field” conversations. At the end of each program, the organizers will offer light refreshments and time for informal networking.


Attendance is free and open to everyone. Subscribers who remit $20 for the year will receive online access to any pre-circulated materials via a password-protected interface. Subscriptions also underwrite the cost of the series. Pre-circulated materials will be available to non-subscribers who have RSVP’d for a session on the Monday prior to the program.

2018-2019 seminar schedule to be posted soon!
