CFP: Western Association of Women Historians
53rd Annual Conference
April 22–24, 2021 | Online
For the first time, the Western Association of Women Historians’s annual conference will be held fully online. The virtual conference will foster critical conversations around all fields, regions, and periods of history. If there was ever a moment to think collectively it's now—but at the same time, many of us are experiencing “Zoom fatigue.” We propose to navigate this divide by bringing us together via dynamic discussion and conversations.
To that end, this year's conference will replace the traditional 20-minute individual paper reading with shorter and more interactive presentation styles. We encourage non-traditional formats and topics, including roundtables on topics such as pedagogy, digital humanities, or public history. In addition, this year we offer “mentoring pods” for conversations around academic publishing, health and wellness, activism; poster presentations in a digital format; and the opportunity to workshop a book chapter or essay to move your work forward.
The deadline to submit a proposal is February 1, 2021.
Founded in 1969, the Western Association of Women Historians is the largest regional women’s historical association in the United States. WAWH welcomes scholars from all fields, in all careers, and at all career stages.
