SCHLESINGER LIBRARY TO SPONSOR SUMMER SEMINAR ON GENDER HISTORY
For the second year, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study is sponsoring the Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library Summer Seminar on Gender History. This year’s topic, “Sequels to the 1960s,” is a look at the gender dynamics behind a diverse set of emerging political and social movements four decades ago, from identity-based liberation and the New Right to environmentalism.
During mornings from June 23 to 27, the public is invited to plenary sessions featuring lectures by prominent historians. (Fee $125; $220 with lunch provided.) From 4 to 7 p.m. June 23-26, working historians, independent writers, scholars, and advanced graduate students will meet in private workshops to share and discuss works in progress. (Fee $650, including meals, accommodations, plenary sessions, and workshops; $295 without lodging.)
Applications for workshops are required by March 20. Registration for plenary sessions is required by May 30. Both must be done electronically. For more information, call (617) 495-8600.
