CFP: Western Association of Women Historians, 53rd Annual Conference

CFP: Western Association of Women Historians

53rd Annual Conference

April 22–24, 2021 | Online

For the first time, the Western Association of Women Historians’ annual conference will be held fully online. The virtual conference will foster critical conversations around all fields, regions, and periods of history. If there was ever a moment to think collectively it's now—but at the same time, many of us are experiencing “Zoom fatigue.” We propose to navigate this divide by bringing us together via dynamic discussion and conversations.

To that end, this year's conference will replace the traditional 20-minute individual paper reading with shorter and more interactive presentation styles. We encourage non-traditional formats and topics, including roundtables on topics such as pedagogy, digital humanities, or public history. In addition, this year we offer “mentoring pods” for conversations around academic publishing, health and wellness, activism; poster presentations in a digital format; and the opportunity to workshop a book chapter or essay to move your work forward.

Complete information about the conference is available on the Call for Participants. Submit a proposal on the online submission form.

The deadline to submit a proposal is February 1, 2021.

Informed by these developments, the 2022 Business History Conference will explore the diverse ways that entrepreneurs, firms, and organizations coped with complexity, uncertainty, and disruption over the long run.
