Papers are invited for the 18th Annual Conference of the Women’s History Network, St. Hilda's College, Oxford, 11-13 September 2009. Within recent feminist scholarship considerable attention has been paid to the role of gender in constructing social space. This conference seeks to engage with this ‘spatial turn’ by considering the possibilities and constraints upon female agency in a broad range of contexts.
Papers are particularly encouraged which focus upon: gender and institutional politics; women’s movements and identity politics; negotiation of power and authority within the family; community and neighbourhood empowerment; politics of the workplace; gender and cultural production.
Please send abstracts of approximately 300 words to Eve Colpus by Friday 6 March 2009 via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or by post to Eve Colpus, New College, Oxford, OX1 3BN
