The Society for the History of Women in the Americas (SHAW, formerly known as British Historians of Women in the Americas) will hold their fifth annual conference on Wednesday 14th March 2012 at Brunel University, west London.
We welcome papers on any aspect of women’s and gender history in North America, South America and the Caribbean. Papers that investigate women’s lives from single or multiple vantage points whether topically or geographically are equally welcome. Scholars working on related topics are encouraged to put together a panel of two to four papers. Speakers at the event will have the opportunity to submit their paper for consideration in SHAW’s journal, History of Women in the Americas.
A 250 word abstract should be submitted to SHAW’s secretary, Dr Rachel Ritchie (firstname.lastname@example.org), by Tuesday 14th February 2012. Those interested in attending the conference as a delegate are more than welcome as well and should register their interest by this date too. All other enquiries about the conference, SHAW and History of Women in the Americas, should also be directed to Dr Ritchie.
The conference fee is payable upon confirmation of your paper being accepted (or upon confirmation of your place in the case of delegates not giving papers). This will be in mid- to late-February. For non-SHAW members, the conference fee is £55 (waged) and £35 (postgraduate/undergraduate/unwaged); this includes a year’s membership of the organisation. For SHAW members, the cost is £28 (waged) and £22 (postgraduate/undergraduate/unwaged).
