Women's History Network West Midlands Region annual Women’s History Conference at the University of Worcester, UK, seeks papers for this year’s event under the heading of: ‘Women in Sport’.

“Mega events” like the Olympic Games always command much public and academic attention, however, this conference seeks to take a more rounded view of women’s sporting experiences historically. We welcome submissions about all aspects of female participation, whether focused on elite or recreational concerns, Olympic or otherwise.

Please send an abstract of 300 words to Dr Wendy Toon w.toon@worc.ac.uk by 01 May 2020.
