Women's Stories, Women's Lives: Making Sense of Experience
On Friday and Saturday, March 4 and 5, 2005, Sarah Lawrence College will hold its seventh annual conference in honor of Women's History Month. This interdisciplinary gathering seeks to understand women's lives by examining the stories they tell about themselves and others. How have women understood their experience? What lessons have they sought to hand down? How have they found their voices in social movements, literature, the academy, the arts? How have differences of class, race, generation, ethnicity, nationality, and sexuality played out in women's lives? Do their stories reveal commonalities that transcend difference?
We welcome all proposals for papers, panels, readings, workshops, and performances that focus on women's stories and lives. We call upon scholars, artists, writers, and activists to take part in the conference.
