50th Annual Conference UC Davis Conference Center, Davis, CA April 26-28, 2018

            Proposals Due: Sunday, October 15, 2017

The Western Association of Women Historians (WAWH) invites proposals for panels, roundtables, posters, workshops, and individual presentations in all fields, regions, and periods of history.

            Although we will consider all types of submissions, we particularly encourage nontraditional formats and topics. These could include panels and roundtables focused on pedagogy, on women in academia, on public history, digital humanities, academic publishing, career paths, activism, etc.

             We strongly encourage participants to replace the customary 20-minute paper reading with shorter and more interactive presentation styles.

            Priority will be given to proposals for complete or partially complete sessions but we will also consider individual papers. The WAWH expects panels to represent the diversity of our membership and profession.

            For guidelines, FAQ on WAWH conferences, submissions, and opportunities to find copanelists, please see information on our 2018 Conference page at

             WAWH welcomes historians and scholars at all career stages and in all career choices.

Membership and Registration Requirement: WAWH membership and 2018 conference preregistration will be required of all program participants. Membership runs conference to conference and is open to all. Annual membership fees are on a sliding scale, ranging from $10- $50 based on position and income level.

            Founded in 1969, the Western Association of Women Historians is the largest regional women’s historical association in the United States.
