The Berkshire Conference of Women Historians seeks proposals for its first Poster Session, to be held at the 2011 Berkshire Conference on the History of Women. The Poster session aims to allow for one-on-one discussion between scholars of all levels on topics pertaining to the broader theme of the conference: “GENERATIONS: Exploring Race, Sexuality, and Labor across Time and Space.” The session will be held on Friday June 10th, from 4pm to 6pm.
The Poster Session offers an alternative to presenters of all levels, junior researchers, mid-career and senior scholars, to share and discuss work-in-progress, technology-bound projects, table-size exhibits, or other presentations that cannot be easily accommodated in a regular panel session. The poster committee strongly encourages students and professionals of all levels to apply. Works in progress and alternative history projects will be welcomed and considered.
Presenters will be required to format and print their own poster (which should not exceed the limits of 36” x 48”). Further guidelines and information will be provided upon selection. The Berkshire Conference will provide a table, a bulletin board, and/or electrical connection depending upon availability. Wireless access will be available.
The submissions for the poster sessions should include the following (please submit your proposal in PDF format) :
- A 300 words abstract of the poster
- A one-page CV containing your name, affiliation, and contact information
-A simple mock-up of the display (guidelines on how to create an effective poster can be found on the University of Minnesota’s website at: http://www.tc.umn.edu/~schne006/tutorials/poster_design/.
-The material needs of your presentation:
__ I require one bulletin board
__ I require one table (15" x 60")
__ I require both a table and a bulletin board
__ I will be using a laptop and need access to an outlet
The poster proposals should be submitted at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 15th, 2011. For information you can contact the committee at email@example.com.
