Conference: Transnational Perspectives on the History of Women in the Americas


Brunel University's Centre for American, Transatlantic and Caribbean History (CATCH) is holding a one-day conference on 19 June 2010 to discuss transnational perspectives on the History of Women in the Americas. We welcome scholars of Canadian, US, Mexican, Caribbean and South American history of women to apply either as individuals or as complete panels of between two to four papers.

Speakers are asked to reflect upon the contours of research into women's history in the Americas, either in comparison between nations or within a single nation. This year's conference does not identify papers by themes, but is open to all research on women in the Americas. It is the practice of our Journal, History of Women in the Americas, to publish selected articles from the conference after they are peer reviewed and accepted by our Editorial Board.

Proposals should be submitted by 15 May at the latest. Please send a 250 word abstract to Prof. Jay Kleinberg c/o grace.mansah-owusu@brunel.ac.uk. Telephone number: + 44 (0) 1895 266821.

Papers are welcome from established academics, early career scholars and postgraduates. Postgraduates can also submit proposals for poster sessions. There is a modest conference fee (£15 for academics and £5 for post-graduates). The conference will be held at Brunel University in Uxbridge, West London. Non-speakers are more than welcome to attend but should register by 1 June as places are limited.

The conference is sponsored by Brunel's CATCH and by the British Historians of Women in the Americas. People who wish to join BHWAs, but who cannot attend the conference should send their details to the above address.

If you would like to promote your conference on our blog please send details here. This is a FREE service!
