In this roundtable conversation, featuring Mary Tomsic, Kat Ellinghaus, Catherine Kevin and Jacinthe Flore, the panel will discuss the ways in which gender histories have been, and can be, written. Each speaker will reflect on their own practices of writing histories of gender in local, transnational, and global contexts, exploring the key ideas, texts, and archives that they have engaged with. Bringing in examples from their research, these four speakers will together converse about sexuality, racialisation, feminism, science, representation, and writing in Australia and across the world.

Supported by the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies.
