Women's History Network Annual Conference
Royal Holloway College, University of London, Egham, Surrey, UK
14th - 15th September 2002
Earning and Learning
Call for Papers
At a time when governments increasingly seem to be linking the purpose of education to the experience of employment, the conference theme seeks to explore the gendered nature of these terms. Papers are invited which focus on both the informal and formal aspects of education and employment, in their broadest definitions. To what extent has education helped women’s search for employment? How have experiences of work and education contributed to the formation of gendered identities? How have the demands of the workplace affected the construction of women’s education?
Proposals for papers are invited which address the following themes:
Theory, methodology and sources
Oral histories, life narratives and auto/biographies.
Employment, education and class.
Sex education and the business of sex.
Education for employment: apprenticeship, vocational and professional training.
Employment, education, race and citizenship.
Inside and outside the classroom: Formal and informal education for women and girls. (Includes teaching women’s history)
Women’s paid and unpaid work.
We particularly welcome comparative papers across countries and continents, and papers which focus on the early modern and medieval period. Remember to include the intended strand and your name and contact address / email. Deadline for submissions is 31st March 2002. Successful proposals will be confirmed in April. Please send submissions of 250 words, preferably in electronic form
