UPDATE: 13 April 2016. We are delighted to announce that a fourth date has been added to our seminar series: we will now also be meeting on 18 March 2017, with a focus on work in progress.
WSG is issuing its annual cfp. Please note potential topics and the change of seminar dates to the 3rd Saturday in each month.
The Women’s Studies Group: 1558-1837 is a small, informal multi-disciplinary group formed to promote women’s studies in the early modern period and the long eighteenth century. The group organises regular meetings and an annual workshop.
WSG membership is open to men and women, graduate students, faculty, and independent scholars. Papers can be any length up to 25 minutes, and can be formal or informal, or even work in progress. The papers are followed by very supportive and informal discussion. Speakers are strongly encouraged to become members of WSG.
Topics can be related to any aspect of women’s studies:
- Not only women writers, but any activity of a woman or women in the period of our concern, anything that affects or is affected by women in this period, such as the law, religion, etc
- Male writers writing about women or male historical figures relevant the condition of women in this period
- Papers tackling aspects of women’s studies within or alongside the wider histories of gender and sexuality are particularly welcome
- Topics from the early part of our period are also especially welcome
- Work in progress is invited for the March session.
Venue: Foundling Museum, 40 Brunswick Square, WC1N 1AZ
Dates: Saturday 17th September, 2016, Saturday 19th November, 2016, Saturday 21st January, 2017, Saturday 18th March, 2017.
We will be allowed into the room at 12.30 pm, to give us time sort out paperwork and technology, but sessions will run from 1.00 – 4.00pm. So please arrive a little early if you can. Please reply to WSG Seminars Organiser Carolyn D. Williams on firstname.lastname@example.org.
