SMFS sponsored session at Leeds, IMC, July 2018 on Women, Memory and Material Culture. We are seeking papers that address the various ways women were involved in commemoration (personal or familial) considering in particular how the end product of their efforts (literary, artistic or architectural) may have been gendered or shaped by considerations unique to women. These panels seek to foster a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary approach to understanding women’s roles in material commemoration and are open to any region in the world.
Please send proposals (250 words) and queries to Erin Jordan (firstname.lastname@example.org). The deadline for proposals is 28 September 2017.
