2018 Annual Conference

We’re just two weeks away from the annual conference of the Society, which will take place on 6 July at the Women’s Library, in the LSE in London.

Registration for the conference should be pre-booked through the event’s eventbrite page , but the registration fee is payable in cash on the day. The cost of registration is £20, with a concessionary rate of £10 for postgraduate students and delegates who are unemployed. The registration fee covers refreshments and lunch, but does not include the conference dinner which will be payable separately.

Registration opens at 9.15am on Friday 6 July, with the first panel of papers due to start at 9.30.

The keynote lecture will be delivered by Dr Kate Dossett (University of Leeds) on the theme “Today’s Young Feminists Know Better Than That”:  Generation Wars, Archival Turns and Histories of Feminism.

Getting to the venue:

The address of the Library is 10 Portugal Street, London WC2A 2HD. The nearest Tube station is Holborn. There is very limited parking near the LSE, so we would advise that conference delegates should take public transport.
