Re-membering/Gendering: Women, Historical Tourism, and Public History

The Southern Association for Women Historians (SAWH) invites proposals for its tenth triennial conference, to be held June 11-14, 2015 at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina. Co-sponsored by the College of Charleston, The Citadel, and Clemson University, the conference provides a stimulating and congenial forum for discussing all aspects of women’s history. Its program seeks to reflect the best in recent scholarship and the diversity of our profession, including university professors, graduate students, museum curators, public historians, and independent scholars.

We invite sessions on all aspects of women’s and gender history and particularly welcome presentations that explore the conference themes: public history, tourism, memory, historic commemoration, and marketing history.

The program committee seeks proposals for the following:
  1. Panels: we prefer to receive proposals for complete, 3-paper sessions but will consider individual papers as well.
    Panel: pdf formword form.   Individual: pdf formword form.
  2. Roundtables: informal discussions of a historical or professional issue.
    Form: pdf formword form.
  3. Working Group Discussions: informal discussions of pre-circulated papers.
    Form: pdf formword form.
  4. Scholarly Shorts: five-minute presentations of a research project.
    Form: pdf formword form.
Scholars interested in chairing or commenting on a session are invited to submit a 500-word vita.
More information on these presentation formats, submission guidelines, and the submission email address is available from the main conference page.

The submissions deadline is August 1, 2014.
