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 for its 50th Annual Meeting to be held at the UC Davis Conference Center, Davis, CA, April 26-28, 2018.  

Proposals are due on October 15, 2017. Although we 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 the Program Committee will also consider individual papers. The WAWH expect panels to represent the diversity of our membership and profession.

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