SAWH Triennial Conference – 2018

Mark your calendars!

The Eleventh Southern Association for Women Historians Conference will be held at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa June 7-10, 2018.

The conference provides a stimulating and congenial forum for discussing all aspects of women’s history.  Its program seeks to reflect the best in recent scholarship and the diversity of our profession, including university professors, graduate students, museum curators, public historians, and independent scholars.  We invite sessions on any dimension of southern women’s and gender history, and particularly those that touch on the themes of the conference.

This year’s theme — Resistance, Power, and Accommodation:  Women and Southern History — is inspired by both recent events and the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote.  We see this as opening a conversation about the many ways that women have fought for their place and rights, whether in the household, the workplace, or the public square.

More information about travel and accommodation is forthcoming.

Please see our full Call for Papers; submissions deadline is August 15, 2017.

All inquiries (but not submissions) may be directed to Anne Sarah Rubin, program committee chair: arubin@umbc.edu

We look forward to seeing you there!
