Ninth Southern Association for Women Historians Conference
Time: June 6-9, 2012
Venue: Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas
The conference provides a stimulating and congenial forum for discussing all aspects of women’s history. Its program seeks to reflect the diversity of our profession and the best in recent scholarship, including by young scholars, graduate students, museum curators, and public historians. We invite sessions on any dimension of southern women’s and gender history and particularly welcome panels that test traditional boundaries, for example geographic, thematic, sexual, and conceptual. Plenary sessions will explore the geographic borders of southern history, LGBT history in the South, and the Native Southwest.
The program committee seeks proposals for traditional panels as well as workshops and roundtable discussions. We prefer to receive proposals for complete sessions, but will consider individual papers as well. Panel proposals should be submitted in a single Microsoft Word document and include: a cover sheet with the session title as well as the names, affiliations, email addresses, and mailing addresses of all participants, including the chair and commentator; a 300-word summary of the session as a whole; a 300-word description for each paper or presentation; a 500-word vita from each participant. Individual paper proposals should include: a cover sheet with the paper title, name, affiliation, email address, and mailing address of the panelist; a 300-word description of the paper; and a 500-word vita. Scholars interested in chairing or commenting on a session are invited to submit a 500-word vita.
All materials should be emailed to the program committee at SAWH2012@gmail.com. Please include your name, affiliation, and email address in the body of your message. Inquires may be directed to Lorri Glover, program committee chair, at
firstname.lastname@example.org. The submissions deadline is August 1, 2011.
