REDMUGEN: International Colloquium of History of Women and Gender in Mexico/Coloquio Internacional de Historia de las Mujeres y de Género en México


Conference Location: University of California, San Diego
Conference Date: Thursday March 2-Saturday March 4, 2017
Paper Proposal Submission Deadline: Friday, September 16, 2016
The International Colloquium of History of Women and Gender in Mexico (REDMUGEN) is pleased to announce its Seventh Meeting, entitled “Pushing Boundaries and Expanding Borders.” It will be held on the campus of the University of California, San Diego, on Thursday March 2 and Saturday March 4, 2017.

In keeping with its fifteen-year tradition, the conference has two objectives:

  • to provide a forum for discussion of new, original research responding to theoretical and empirical literature about gender in Mexico
  • to promote and strengthen the ties among an international community of scholars dedicated to research about women’s experiences and gender issues in Mexico

Submissions from all disciplines are strongly encouraged, and the conference welcomes proposals to present on any aspect of the history of women, gender, and sexuality in Mexico. At the same time, the conference encourages proposals for panels or round tables to address some or all of the following topics:

  1. studies of migration/immigration and gender/women in the context of Mexico or Mexico to the United States (preferably in historical context but contemporary would also be considered)
  2. the historiography of Northern Mexico and women, gender, and sexuality in Northern Mexico
  3. the historiography/study of women, gender, and sexuality on the US-Mexican border
  4. the historiography/study of Mexican women and gender and sexuality issues among Mexican immigrants in the United States
  5. cross-cultural communication/collaboration among Mexican and US women
  6. sexual diversity
  7. sexual relations and sexuality in the context of migration/immigration and international/transcultural communication
  8. opportunities and challenges presented by digitization in providing access to sources for the history of gender, women, and sexuality in Mexico

* Before submitting a presentation proposal, however, PLEASE note that REDMUGEN has a policy that the same people not present at two conferences in a row. Thus, if you presented at the MOST RECENT REDMUGEN colloquium hosted by the Colegio de México, it will not be possible for you to present at this conference. Instead of submitting a presentation proposal, REDMUGEN suggests that you offer to serve as a moderator or in another, similar function. The selection committee will do its very best to accommodate your request. This policy is designed to diversify and widen the number of people involved in REDMUGEN and increase opportunities for newly emerging scholars to participate.

For paper proposals, please submit a one-page curriculum vitae and a one-page proposal that includes your name, institutional affiliation/title, email address, and proposal title, as well as a 250-word abstract that states how the work contributes to the field and a incorporates a brief note on primary sources consulted, to: redmugen@ucsd.edu

For panel proposals with up to 3 presenters, please submit a one-page curriculum vitae for each presenter, along with a one-page proposal that includes the name, institutional affiliation/title, email address, and proposal title for each participant, as well as a 250-word abstract that states how the panel contributes to the field and incorporates a note on primary sources consulted, to: redmugen@ucsd.edu
