The Berkshire Conference of Women Historians has just posted its call for papers for the 15th Berkshire Conference on the History of Women, which will be held at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, June 9-12, 2011. The theme is “Generations,” and the link to the call will remain in the sidebar at left until March 1 2010, the closing date for proposals.
I’ve been attending this conference for almost twenty years — the first one I attended was at Douglas College, Rutgers University, in 1990. I’ve gone to every one since then. I even attended the Little Berks for the first time last Fall. It’s a great place to meet others working in the field of women’s history — like summer camp for academics. Oh yes, and there’s a dance!
