ONE-DAY SYMPOSIUM: WOMEN, HISTORY & THE BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT
26 February 2004 Venue: The Women's Library
To coincide with the exhibition, "Office Politics: women and workplace 1870-2004", The Women’s Library, in association with the Business Records Group of the Society of Archivists, is organising a one-day inter-disciplinary, cross-domain symposium to examine issues relating to women, history and the business environment. The symposium aims to bring together those that care for business records and collections in a variety of contexts with those who exploit them for research. It will explore the often hidden potential of these materials for the study of women’s lives. Papers are sought across a wide range of fields including archive and collections management; business and women’s studies and history; local, social and economic history; biographical and family research; cultural studies; sociology; architecture, design and technology. Keynote speakers include Clare Bunkham of the Group Archives, Prudential plc.
Please send submissions of 250 words, preferably electronically, to Hilary Clay.
Deadline for submissions is 3 November 2003. Successful proposals will be confirmed by 17 November 2003
