Breaking Boundaries The 11th Berkshire Conference on the History of Women University of Rochester, Rochester, NY June 4-6, 1999
The 11th Berkshire Conference on the History of Women, "Breaking Boundaries," will be held on June 4-6, 1999 at the University of Rochester, Rochester, New York USA. The Program Committee welcomes proposals that transcend regional, disciplinary, and cultural boundaries; that break traditional boundaries of academic presentation and explore innovative ways of presenting material and involving the audience. The Committee also seeks proposals that discuss pedagogy, collaborative research, and feminist activism. The Committee encourages international participation and panels that represent a diversity of participants. We prefer proposals for complete panels (normally two papers, one commentator, and a chair) or roundtables, especially those with cross-national and comparative themes. Individual papers will also be considered. The Program Committee may rearrange panels; submission of a proposal will be taken as agreement with this proviso. No one may appear more than once on the program in any capacity. Please submit proposals IN TRIPLICATE, POSTMARKED BY JANUARY 31, 1998, in a single packet marked "ATTN: Berkshire Conference" to the appropriate co-chair. Each proposal must include: 1) panel title or roundtable theme; 2) title and one-page abstract of each paper or presentation; 3) name and address of contact person; 4) one-page vita for each participant, including current address, telephone number, fax number, and e-mail address; 5) a self-addressed, stamped postcard for return upon receipt of packet.
