Registrations are now open for "Flesh and Blood: A Feminist Symposium on Embodied Histories" at the Australian National University, Canberra, on Friday 8th May 2015.

This symposium celebrates and builds upon the rich tradition of placing the body at the centre of feminist historical analysis. It will explore how gender norms are reflected, reinscribed and contested through bodies and encourage consideration of new methods and sources for studying the elusive bodies of the past.

Keynote Speakers:

Joanna Bourke, Professor of History at Birkbeck, University of London, and Fellow of the British Academy 2014

Joy Damousi, Professor of History at the University of Melbourne, and Kathleen Fitzpatrick Australian Laureate Fellow 2014
