We help women historians thrive through events, resources, and community.
The guest editors intend to submit selected articles for inclusion in a special issue of Histoire sociale / Social History provisionally titled “Activist Lives”.
This special issue seeks to bring together articles that contribute historical depth and comparative breadth to the subject of activist lives. By taking seriously the role of emotion, and by focusing on individual and collective biographies, the co-editors hope to move beyond institutional or issue-based histories to show how movements for social change have owed into one another through the medium of relationships.
Individuals who are interested in contributing to the special issue should send a 300-400 word abstract and a short 2-page CV by July 1, 2018 to Lana Dee Povi and Steven High at email@example.com.
