The Berkshire Conference of Women Historians will meet for the "Little Berks" weekend at the Beekman Arms Inn in Rhinebeck, NY, Friday October 29-31, 1999.
The "Little Berks" is a gathering of women historians that combines daytime hikes, bicycling, strolls and conversation with evening presentations on the history of women. This year's program will feature Thavolia Glymph and Nan Woodruff on Friday evening: "Questions of Power: Race, Class and Gender in the Southern Countryside." On Saturday evening Jane Caplan will present a talk with slides on the history of tatoos in Europe in "Now You See It--Now You Don't."
