Studying Herstories: WHN Online Student Conference – Call for Papers

The Women’s History Network (WHN) are seeking proposals from students working in women’s history, to present at our Inaugural Student Conference on 8 March 2021, International Women’s Day. This Conference will be a welcoming, supportive and inclusive space, offering the opportunity for both undergraduate and postgraduate students to present and discuss women’s history. Our Keynote Speaker will be Dr Lucy Delap, Reader in Modern British and Gender History at the University of Cambridge.

The WHN seeks to support and nurture all students of women’s history, and this conference aims to celebrate the original and fresh perspectives they bring to the study of women’s history. The conference will be a one-day, online event, presentations will be 5-10 minutes long followed by brief questions.

All presentations must focus on women’s history, but there are no geographical or temporal limits on topics. There will be no conference fee, but all presenters should be student members of the WHN and will receive a £50 Book voucher after the event thanks to sponsorship from History West Midlands.

Please note the conference will take place via zoom and will be livestreamed on Facebook.
