Owing to the train strike planned for 30 September 2023, the one day conference ‘Women and the Natural World: Historical Perspectives on Nature, Climate and Environmental Change’, will now be held on Zoom and not at Exeter Central Library. The cost has been reduced to reflect this.
The key note speaker is Professor Nicola Whyte, University of Exeter, on ‘Landscape, Memory and the Life-course in the Travel Writing of Celia Fiennes’.
Papers are organised around the themes of Women and the Rural Environment; Ecofeminism and Women’s Activism; and Natural Science, Education and Community Action.
The West of England and South Wales Women’s History Network 30th Annual Conference ‘Women and the Natural World: Historical Perspectives on Nature Climate and Environmental Change’ is on Saturday 30 September 2023 from 10 am to 5pm on Zoom.
All welcome. Cost £5. For programme and booking see the WESWWHN website.
