The fourth biennial conference of Women and Gender Historians of the Midwest (WGHOM) will be held on June 18 and 19, 2010 at the Town Clock Center for Professional Development of Northeast Iowa Community College in Dubuque, Iowa. This conference will bring together scholars, educators, students and the public to explore current issues in women's and gender history as we showcase the academic work of Midwestern and other scholars who focus on women or gender. Honoring our conference location in the historic river community of Dubuque, Iowa, our 2010 theme highlights the convergence of scholarship and contemporary pedagogy in all areas of women's history and related disciplines. In keeping with this theme we encourage not only the presentation of research by academics, graduate students and undergraduates, but also papers, roundtables and panels from teaching faculty, librarians, archivists, high school teachers and public historians in all areas of women's history, gender history, and related fields.
The deadline for submission of proposals, consisting of an abstract (500 words or less) and one-page c.v., is January 15, 2010. Send proposals to the program committee in care of Kristin Anderson-Bricker(firstname.lastname@example.org).
