Statement of diversity

The strength of SGNCS is derived from the diversity of our membership and it is our policy to reject all forms of prejudices and discrimination and ensure that SGNCS fosters diversity in the field for global nineteenth-century studies, including but not limited to representation by people of color, Indigenous people, persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities, gender expressions, veteran status, persons with disabilities, persons from all types of educational institutions, backgrounds, and different employment positions. The SGNCS is respectful of all languages including those reflected in our membership and transnational networks across several continents, as well as inclusive of scholars and independent thinkers from a wide range of geographic regions and disciplinary perspectives.

Statement of anti-harassment

The SGNCS is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and inclusive environment for all participants in all of its activities, in all venues, and social settings free from all forms of harassment or intimidation based on an individual’s sex, race, age, ethnicity, national origin, religion, language, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, disability, health conditions, socioeconomic status, marital status, domestic status, or parental status. It should be clearly understood that harassment, whether explicit or implicit, verbal or physical, will not be tolerated by SGNCS. All members and non-members, including employees, contractors, vendors, volunteers and guests, are expected to abide by this policy and engage in respectful and professional behavior in all communications and at biennial congresses, workshops, official and unofficial SGNCS gatherings.

Constitution and by-laws

Until relatively recently, historians as well as contextually oriented scholars in art history, musicology, literary studies, and related fields utilized the nation-state or regions as their key frameworks of analysis. Since the early 1990s, however, new approaches to studying phenomena that transcend nation-states and culturally bounded areas have emerged. Although transnational, global, and international history and related approaches such as transimperialism, transatlanticism, and transpacificism all differ in their methodologies and assumptions, they share the common goals of thinking outside national paradigms and beyond Western perspectives. The Society for Global Nineteenth Century Studies serves as a gathering place for scholars hailing from a variety of disciplines who take phenomena of global significance as their principal concern. The draft constitution and by-laws will be ratified at our first World Congress in 2023.
