The Coalition for Western Women's History (CWWH) invites your participation in a writing group that will meet during the 2010 Western Historical Association Conference. If you have an article or chapter-length work in progress, and would like feedback from published scholars in your field, this Writing Group speaks to that need. We will pair each writer with readers who have relevant expertise.
The plan is for each writer to send their draft to their designated reader at least one month before the WHA. At the WHA, writers can meet with their reader(s), for in-person discussion of the work. Note: This writer's group is NOT a formal session at the conference.
Writers, please send an abstract of your essay to Renee Laegeid by June 15, 2010. If you are willing to serve as a Reader, please send a brief description of your expertise to Renee Laegreid by June 15, 2010. Writers and readers will be notified of their pairings by July 15, 2007; after which they can contact each other, and proceed on their own.
This Writing Group is open to graduate students as well as faculty and independent scholars. Faculty and Independent Scholars who are published scholars are welcome to serve as readers, whether they are junior, senior, or at four-year colleges or universities, or work ‘at large.’ For those among you who have no colleagues at your home institution within the field of western gender history, welcome to the community!
