To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the United Methodist Women, Methodist Theological School in Ohio will host a conference on this historic organization on May 28-30, 2015. Papers that explore the history, significance, prominent persons, and defining issues in the development of UMW and its predecessor organizations are welcome. The anniversary year itself will be 2019.
The conference theme is United Methodist Women's History: Voices Lost and Found. Proposals of 250-500 words for 30-minute presentations must be received by May 1, 2014. Please include a short academic profile. Submit proposals to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Presenters will be notified of their selection by September 15, 2014.
The conveners hope to publish a volume of selected essays from the conference. Presentation of a paper at the conference does not guarantee selection for the book. Papers selected for publication will need to be 7,000-8,000 words and must be submitted by May 1, 2016.
