The annual Canadian Association for Women's Public History Conference is on the theme of "Women's Bodies in a Public History Context." It will be held on 7-8 November 2008 at the Canadian Museum of Civilization (Gatineau) and the Canadian War Museum (Ottawa)
The conference will bring together international participants including museum professionals, public historians, art historians, community groups, scholars, authors, archaeologists, genealogists, playwrights, actors, artists, archivists, students and others interested in exploring the theme of women’s bodies in a public history context. Papers will explore the presentation of women’s bodies in public history venues; the nature and degree of exploration of, among other issues, body image, reproduction, dis/ability, sexuality, and regulation of the body (including diet, legal structures, clothing); and seek to identify other areas and topics related to women’s bodies that we could/should/must explore.
Keynote Speaker: Kathryn Church, School of Disability Studies, Ryerson University.
