H-ASIA *********************************************** From: "Robert W. Cherny" <email@example.com> Subject: CFP: panel on woman suffrage This message is going to H-ANZAU, H-Asia, H-California, H-Japan, H-LatAm, H-SHGAPE, H-West, and H-Women. A conversation earlier this week about international comparisons of woman suffrage movements coincided with the announcement at the end of this message to suggest to me the possibility of one or two panels or workshops at the PCB focused on international comparisons of woman suffrage movements in the Pacific Basin. I visualize perhaps 4 people per panel, each briefly summarizing the salient features of the suffrage movement in one state using some agreed upon criteria that will permit panelists to draw comparisons. One panel might include, e.g., California, New Zealand, a South American country, Hawaii, and an east Asian country. A second panel might include a different US state (Washington should be interesting), British Columbia, a different Latin American country (Mexico perhaps), Australia, and a different east Asian country. We'd look for similarities, differences, and cross-national influences. If you're interested in being on such a panel, send me via e-mail a brief vita and a brief (one-paragraph) summary of what you could provide for a particular country. If you'd like to chair or comment, send me that information and a brief vita. Please respond to me directly rather than to the list. Bob Cherny, San Francisco State University _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ The announcement for the PCB conference follows: Subject: American Historical Association, Pacific Coast Branch Date: Tue, 27 Oct 98 08:54:00 PST Because of unexpected difficulties with convention facilities, the Pacific Coast Branch, American Historical Association, will hold its August 4-8, 1999, at the Royal Lahaina Hotel, Maui, Hawaii, rather than on the Big Island, Hawaii, as originally announced. Panel and individual paper proposals are still being accepted. Send three copies of the proposal to program co-chair, Dr. Lisa Emmerich, Dept. of History, Chico State University, Chico, CA 95929-0735 or FAX (530) 898-6925. Proposals must specify any audiovisual/media equipment required by paper presenters. Please include your regular mail address, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address in your cover letter and indicate if you would prefer subsequent contacts by e-mail or postal service. DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 15, 1998. Expect notification by early February, 1999, regarding acceptance. ====================================================
