The Berkshire Conference of Women Historians presents its 17th Conference

June 1-4, 2017, Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY

Difficult Conversations: Thinking and Talking about Women, Genders, and Sexualities Inside and Outside the Academy

Women, Gender and Science

The Program Committee welcomes proposals for panels, papers, round-table discussions, or other presentations on all aspects of the history of women, gender(s), and science (including medicine and technology). We are particularly interested in creating a program that includes a range of geographic areas, historical periods, and methodologies. We welcome proposals that are interdisciplinary and intersectional, and that represent a diverse set of voices within academia and beyond including, but not limited to, those that engage visual and performing arts, science fiction, civic science, do-it-yourself experiments, computing and the Maker Movement. We especially encourage panel proposals that bring together scholars, artists, and/or practitioners around a common theme.

Track Chairs:

  • Elly Truitt,  Bryn Mawr,
  • Ruha Benjamin, Princeton,
