Third Annual Weider History Conference "Sex and Gender in France, 1750-1870"
The Institute on Napoleon and the French Revolution, in Florida State University’s Department of History, will be hosting a two-day workshop on approaches to gender and sexuality in French history. Scholars from North America will be presenting their cutting-edge research in this rising field of French historical study.
The subjects to be discussed range from the family, slavery, prostitution, sexual violence, adultery, medical authority, village conflict, scandal, and sexual culture in eighteenth and nineteenth century France. Each presentation will be followed by a round table discussion linking the specific paper topic to broader theoretical and historiographical issues.
The workshop will be held in the Longmire building on the Florida State University Campus, room 204.
