The WAWH invites faculty members, graduate students, independent
scholars and others for a collegial, stimulating, and 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.

WAWH offers a 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

Current (2009-2010) WAWH membership and 2010 conference preregistration

panels. Submission of proposal will indicate agreement with this policy.
