February Question of the Month
Welcome to our Question of the Month series, which we hope will launch robust discussions about research, pedagogy, and practice in the study of women and gender in the U.S. South. We also hope that subscribers from all backgrounds and at all stages of their careers will share ideas, insights, questions, and resources--just click the 'Post a Reply' button to join the conversation!
This month we continue our series inspired by the recently published book Sisterly Networks: Fifty Years of Southern Women's Histories, edited by Catherine Clinton.
In her essay "A Place Where Women Can Feel Valued," Melissa Walker argues that "the SAWH has done two important things: advance the careers of individual female historians and encourage, develop, and legitimize the study of women's history." What effect has the SAWH had on your career, and how has the SAWH shaped the way you engage with history?
If you have any questions or comments about the series or have any suggestions for our next Question of the Month, please email H-SAWH editor Jesse George-Nichol (firstname.lastname@example.org). This series will also post to H-SAWH's Twitter feed at @HNetSAWH.
