There’s never been a better time to join or re-new your membership in the Southern Association for Women Historians (SAWH)—or to encourage colleagues and graduate students to join!

The SAWH especially welcomes as members anyone who is interested in southern and/or women’s history, as well as all women historians in any field who live in the South. The SAWH meets annually in conjunction with the Southern Historical Association, awards publication prizes and a mid-career fellowship, and sponsors the triennial Southern Conference on Women’s History. SAWH members receive a thrice-yearly newsletter with announcements of conferences, calls for papers, and news about the organization and the activities of its members. Membership is your opportunity to become a part of a valuable network.

In 2022, SAWH members will gather together at the Triennial Conference at the University of Kentucky from June 9-12. This conference provides a stimulating and convivial environment for attendees to present their work. It’s an especially great venue for newer historians to receive feedback and meet colleagues in their fields.

If you are in a position to do so, please consider buying memberships for graduate students or junior colleagues.

All new and renewed memberships take effect immediately and run through December 31, 2022. Please visit to join or renew. Annual and gift memberships are $35. Student memberships are $15. Life memberships are $500.
