CALL FOR PAPERS: Centering Gender History (Women’s and Gender Historians of the Midwest Conference)
The Women’s and Gender Historians of the Midwest announces a Call for Papers for a conference on June 10-12, 2004, at Loyola University Chicago, Lakeshore Campus. The organization hopes to provide a network for students, faculty, and history professionals working on women’s and/or gender history in the Midwest through conferences and web resources. This inaugural conference will serve as a complement to women’s history conferences already in place for the Northeast, South, and West.
We anticipate that this will be a conference that engages broad questions facing historians and people who use history in their work. In particular, we hope to create a dialogue between scholars in academia, history professionals and students, teachers, museum and archives personnel, and the public. The committee is particularly interested in innovative and creative presentation formats that allow for useful discussions among participants.
Proposals for short papers (15-20 minutes), panels, roundtables, workshops, media presentations, and posters should include an abstract of the proposed paper or session and a one-page vita by September 1, 2003. For more information on the organization and the conference, please see the W(G)HOM website.
Please send proposals to the following contacts:
