The Society for the Study of Early Modern Women and Gender supports and promotes inclusive and creative scholarship on women and gender across the early modern world. We are deeply committed to interdisciplinary, intersectional approaches that are historically sensitive and theoretically exploratory, and to teaching that reflects this scholarship. We welcome as members to our community all university faculty, students, and independent scholars interested in any topic that speaks to the Society’s mission.At the end of a two year process, in December 2018, current members voted, and the addition of Gender to our name won by 67.5%! Our new name is thus The Society for the Study of Early Modern Women and Gender, and our acronym becomes SSEMWG. EMWG
The executive committee is working on updating the language in our bylaws, logo, and other places. Stay tuned for more updates.
