The Southern Association for Women Historians invites proposals for the Sixth Southern Conference on Women's History, to be held on the campus of the University of Georgia, in Athens, June 5-7, 2003. The conference provides a stimulating and congenial forum for the discussion of all aspects of women's history. Its program seeks to reflect the diversity of women's experiences in the United States and elsewhere and to feature the history of women from a wide range of racial, class, and ethnic backgrounds.
The program committee welcomes all topics in gender and women's history, broadly defined; in addition to southern women's history, it encourages panels from the southwest, other regions in the U.S., and from other countries as well. Proposals from junior scholars and graduate students are especially welcome. Graduate students presenters will be eligible to submit their paper for the Jacquelyn Dowd Hall Prize, which is awarded during the conference by the Graduate Committee of the SAWH.
Complete panels and round tables are preferred, but the program committee will also consider individual papers. Panel submissions should include the following: one-paragraph panel description; one-paragraph summary of each paper; 1-2 page curriculum vitae for each participant with current contact information. Panel submissions should also designate one participant as a contact person. Individual paper submissions should include a one-page summary of the paper and 1-2 page curriculum vitae with current contact information. Please send submissions to Laura Edwards at the address below. You may also submit by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is August 15, 2002. Additional information about the conference is available at www.uga.edu/swch; please consult the site for announcements and conference updates.
