40th Anniversary Conference

Santa Clara University
Santa Clara, California
April 30-May 3, 2009

All are invited to come to the San Francisco Bay area to celebrate the 40th anniversary
conference of the WAWH. The WAWH conference brings together faculty,
graduate students, independent scholars, and others for
a unique, collegial, professional weekend of history and networking.

The program committee welcomes proposals for panels or single papers on any historical
subject, time period, or region. The program committee seeks to emphasize that papers do
not necessarily have to focus on women’s or gender history, although those issues are of
interest to the membership. All periods of history are welcome, especially non-U.S.
subjects. 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.

In 2009, WAWH is pleased to announce a new 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.

Mail six sets of proposal material to the program committee chair,
