The Texas Women’s History Network (TWHN) is pleased to announce its first annual symposium, to be held at Rice University in Houston on April 21, 2007. Elizabeth Hayes Turner, associate professor at the University of North Texas and author of Women, Culture, and Community: Religion and Reform in Galveston, 1880–1920 will give the keynote address. In addition to paper sessions, there will be a forum to discuss future goals and projects. We welcome anyone who is interested in historical scholarship on the topic women in the Texas and/or the Texas region or in promoting women’s issues within the profession.
