The Program includes:

  • Sessions designed for K-12 teachers to help integrate women’s and gender history into the primary and secondary curriculum.
  • Practical sessions devoted to the challenges of the academic job market, balancing scholarship while parenting, and looking beyond the academy for jobs.
  • Performances which complement the academic panels and highlight the experiences of veterans, World War II “comfort women,” formerly incarcerated women, and the lives of indigenous peoples from North America to Australia.
  • A Book Exhibit with over 25 publishers displaying the latest scholarship.
