We are pleased to announce that the University of South Dakota, Vermillion, SD will be hosting its biennial Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies research conference March 12-14, 2019. This year's conference theme, (Un)Told Stories, invites work that grapples with the personal and societal politics of storytelling at the intersection of gender and sexuality and other marginalized group identities, both today and historically. Submission deadline is December 15, 2018.
H-Women's purpose is to enable historians more easily to discuss research interests, teaching methods, and the state of the field and historiography of women's studies. H-Women is especially interested in methods of teaching history to graduate and undergraduate students in diverse settings.
