The Western Association of Women Historians (WAWH) will hold its 40th Annual Conference May 15-18, 2008, at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Merry Wiesner-Hanks, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, will be the keynote speaker.
The 2008 Call for Papers is now posted on the organizational web site: http://www.wawh.org/ The program committee is soliciting submissions that seek to non-U.S. topics, especially Canadian and European history. Papers do not necessarily have to focus on women or gender history, although those issues are of special interest to our membership. Proposals for the 2008 conference are due November 1, 2007.
The WAWH was founded in 1969 by Linda Kerber and Grace Larson to promote the interests of women historians both in academic settings and in the field of history generally. Drawing scholars mainly from the Western states, but also from across the country, the WAWH is the largest of the regional women's historical associations in the United States. Organization information and membership form are available online at http://www.wawh.org/. Contact Executive Director, Amy Essington at firstname.lastname@example.org, with questions.
