CFP: Western Association of Women Historians

3 Aug

I just received this CFP in my mailbox from a colleague:

43rd Annual Conference
Huntington Library
Pasadena, California
April 7-9, 2011

The WAWH invites faculty members, graduate students, independent scholars and others for a collegial, stimulating, and professional weekend of history and networking.

The program committee welcomes proposals for panels or single papers on any historical subject, time period, or region. Papers do not necessarily have to focus on women’s or gender history, although these issues are of interest to the membership. All fields and periods of history are welcome, and especially non-U.S. history. Panels, workshops, or roundtables on issues in the historical profession are also encouraged. Proposals for complete panels, including commentators, are preferred, but individual papers are also welcome.

WAWH offers a prize for the best paper presented by a graduate student at the WAWH meeting. Please see for guidelines.

Proposals must include each of the following:
1) A required WAWH Cover Page (found at
2) A one-half to one-page abstract for each paper submitted
3) One-to-two-page curriculum vitae for each panelist

Email proposal to by 11:59pm on September 15, 2010.
Save all three parts of the proposal for each presenter (whether an individual paper or a panel) as a single word document, naming the file as lastnamefirstnamewawh2011. For a panel, the file name should be the name of the contact person.

If you have any questions, please contact either program co-chair:
Corliss K. Slack,, 509-777-4366.
April Bullock, 951-684-2452.

    Sweet! Are you going to submit a proposal?

    By the way, I’m probably going to add a tab for professional associations.

    Probably not. It’s at the end of the semester for us, and I plan to go to England soon after. I plan to submit for 2012, though.
