Taking Stock of Gender at AHA19

I wrote a short piece for AHA Perspectives Daily on the state of gender history at the annual meeting, and it’s out today.

If you don’t want to read an entire post, the piece boils down to one question, which will surprise no one:

Has attention to gender (and the relations of power it highlights) really reshaped the university or the other spaces where historians make their living?

Speaking of reshaping the academy, I’m especially looking forward to historian Linda Kerber’s interview at the Committee on Gender Equity (CGE) breakfast Saturday morning, January 5. This is my final breakfast as a member of the CGE and we’re honored to present Kerber in conversation with Mary Ann Villarreal. [Tickets are still available!]
