The 12th Conference of the International Federation for Research on Women’s History/ Federation Internationale Pour la Recherche en Histoire des Femmes (IFRWH/FIRHF) will be held August 9-12, 2018 at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, BC, Unceded Coast Salish Territory-Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, and Musqueam Nations.
Empires: Towards a Global History
The proposed conference is premised on the idea that empires drew their strength from a global systemic architecture of hegemony and dominance. The objective of the conference is designed to emphasize how imperial interactions served to reinforce empires within their global scaffolding. “Towards a Global History of Empires” seeks to delineate different strands and interconnected themes that explain both empires’ persistence as well as their mutations over time.
The themes that we propose for the conference shall include:

What purpose do dystopian novels serve? What is their effect on readers? Are they meant to change readers’ behavior, to call them to action, or are they meant to be read for entertainment? How do readers typically respond to reading them? When dystopian works become so popular that they flood the markets, do they lose their impact becoming merely white noise?
