I'm interested in putting together a panel for the 2015 SAWH conference in Charleston that will focus on southern women and women's organizations that contributed to public history in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. My own work examines how claiming daughterhood allowed patriotic hereditary societies like the United Daughters of the Confederacy to perform their high politicized memorial work at the turn of the century. I am seeking two other panelists whose work is broadly related to women's memorial activities and/or public history. Please submit paper abstracts of no more than 300 words to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Wednesday, July 23rd.
