CFP – Western Association of Women Historians

The Western Association of Women Historians will hold its 2016 conference at the Sheraton Denver Downtown in Denver, Colorado, May 12-14, 2016.

The Western Association of Women Historians (WAWH) invites proposals
for panels, single papers, roundtables, posters, and workshops in ALL
fields, regions, and periods of history. The program committee especially
invites proposals with gender, generational, geographic, racial, and
institutional diversity in regard to panel content and/or panel composition.
This year we are particularly interested in panels that offer historical
perspectives on hot-button issues such as economic inequality, conflicts
over race and immigration, and environmental degradation. We also
welcome panels on public history, academic publishing, and
alternative career paths for historians, as well as panels on issues
relevant to women and adjuncts in academia today. Finally, we would
especially like to encourage Canadian and Mexican historians to apply, as
we hope in coming years to become more representative of Western North
America as a whole. Priority will be given to proposals for complete
sessions, but individual papers will be incorporated where possible.

WAWH welcomes scholars at all career stages (from students to senior faculty),
as well as independent scholars. We award a prize for the best conference
paper presented by a graduate student as well as a number of others awards
for articles, monographs, dissertations, and electronic publications by WAWH
members. See for details.
Scholars may self-nominate as commentators or panel chairs by providing a
short curriculum vitae and submitting a brief statement outlining their areas of
expertise and topics of special interest. Please specify whether you are willing
to serve as commentator, chair or both.
Membership and Registration Requirement: WAWH membership and 2016
conference preregistration will be required of all program participants.
Membership runs conference to conference and is open to all.
