The 2012 Conference on Women and the Civil War will honor the women who lost their lives in the Pittsburgh Arsenal Explosion of 1862. We invite proposals celebrating the women of the homefront and in the field, especially those whose production work supported the causes of the North or the South.
Potential presenters should submit:
1. A synopsis of the presentation, not more than 3 pages. The synopsis must include a description of visual aids to be used.
2. A bibliography of the sources used, with emphasis on the primary sources.
3. A personal vitae or biography, not more than 1 page, including contact information.
Submissions from graduate students encouraged. A micro-history perspective is preferred. Only presentations based on original research will be considered for selection.
The Society will contact all submitters in November 2012. Presentation submission indicates acceptance to speak if selected by the Conference Committee.
