Call for Presenter (NACBS 2021 Conference)

Drawing from James Belich’s identification of an “Anglo-World” created by British settler-colonialism, presenters will explore how women acted as transnational arbiters of causes as diverse as nineteenth-century evangelism through preaching, and colonial women’s espousal of national identities through international feminism during the interwar.
