The fourth biennial conference of Women and Gender Historians of the Midwest (WGHOM) will be held on June 17, 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.
Our keynote speaker: Dr. Pat Cohen, Department of History, University of California, Santa Barbara. She is the author of The Murder of Helen Jewett: The Life and Death of a Prostitute in Nineteenth-Century New York and co-author of The Flash Press: Sporting Male Weeklies in 1840s New York.
The title of her WGHOM keynote address is "An 1850's Challenge to Traditional Marriage: Mary Gove Nichols and the American 'Free Love' Movement."
