2018 SAWH Conference – Call for Papers

Eleventh Southern Association for Women Historians Conference
Resistance, Power, and Accommodation:  Women and Southern History
June 7-10, 2018
University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa AL

The Southern Association for Women Historians (SAWH) invites proposals for its eleventh triennial conference, to be held June 7-10, 2018 at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa Alabama.  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 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.

The program committee seeks proposals for the following:

1) Panels (We prefer to receive proposals for complete, 3-paper sessions but will consider individual papers as well).

2) Roundtables (Informal discussions of a historical or professional issue)

3) Workshops (Informal discussions centered on professional development)

Scholars interested in chairing or commenting on a session are invited to submit a 500-word vita.

Please send completed submission forms to: sawh2018submit@gmail.com

The submissions deadline is September 1, 2017.  Inquiries (but not submissions) may be directed to Anne Sarah Rubin, program committee chair, at arubin@umbc.edu
