Theme: Women and Humanities
Mary Baldwin College
March 26-27, 2010
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Nikki Giovanni
The Virginia Humanities Conference invites proposals for individual papers or complete panel sessions, electronic/multimedia presentations or performances related to humanities disciplines that address the theme “Women and Humanities”. (Humanities disciplines include, but are not limited to: art, art history, cultural studies, communication, history, literature, music, performing arts, visual arts, philosophy and religion.)
Women have participated in the humanities for centuries. Whether scholarship was produced by women or by men about women, women continue to play an integral role in our understanding of the human condition. This conference hopes to promote intellectual exchange between scholars, educators, museum curators, librarians and all of those interested in women and the humanities. We are pleased that Dr. Nikki Giovanni will present the keynote address at an opening banquet that participants will not soon forget.
Proposals should not be longer than one page. The individual paper proposal should include a title, the name of the participant(s) and her/his affiliation, and an abstract of the presentation that discusses the sources used and the significance of the topic presented. Proposals for complete panel sessions, presentations, etc. should include a description of the overall session, as well as a separate description for each individual presentation in the panel that follows the guidelines noted above for individual paper proposals.
