Julie DesJardins and I are looking for a historian with an expertise in the area of women in higher education and/or the professions to serve as chair and discussant to complete our panel proposal for the 2011 Berkshire Conference on the History of Women. The panel focuses on women’s work in academic disciplines in the second half of the Twentieth Century. The current papers, one on women scientists and one on historians of women, consider how women intellectuals and academics placed their work and established professional lives in predominantly male intellectual and professional cultures.
We are also accepting proposals for a third panelist working in a similar area, though preferably with an international or non-U.S. focus.
Please contact me off-net at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you are currently working on something that would be a good fit or would be interested in chairing or serving as discussant. The deadline for panel submissions is March 1, 2010 so I would need to hear from interested parties very soon and have paper abstracts of 250 words by February 20. The Berkshire Conference will be held in Amherst, Massachussetts June 9-12, 2011
