Call for Papers

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 any dimension 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).
2) Roundtables (Informal discussions of a historical or professional issue)
3) Working Group Discussions (Informal discussions of pre-circulated papers)
4) Scholarly Shorts (Five-minute presentations of a research project)

Scholars interested in chairing or commenting on a session are invited to submit a 500-word vita.

The submissions deadline is August 1, 2014.  Inquiries (but not submissions) may be directed to Blain Roberts, program committee chair, at
