The conference will look at the past 20 years of writing women’s history; asking the question where are we now? We will be looking at histories of feminism as well as contemporary research in progress, current areas of debate such as religion, and perspectives on national and international histories of the women’s movements. Some of the current research networks will attend to present their findings.
