The Society for the History of Women in the Americas (SHAW) is delighted to be hosting its third writing workshop for postgraduate students on Wednesday 23rd of July 2014 at the University of Cambridge, 1-6pm. The workshop is a forum for students to submit a piece of their writing (around 2,000 words in length), receive feedback for their work from fellow postgraduates and discuss all the trappings of academic writing. The organisers hope to provide an informal environment in which postgrads can network and practice the defence of their thesis. The event will be free to attend and is open to postgraduate historians studying any aspect of the history of the Americas. 

If you would be interested in attending, you would need to send your piece of writing to us by the 13th of July. If you would like to know more, please contact Jon Coburn (Northumbria University) at

Many thanks,
Jon ​
