2022 Annual Conference Call for Papers

Society for the History of Women in the Americas

Annual Conference
Friday 1st July 2022
British Library, London

The Society for the History of Women in the Americas (SHAW) welcomes
proposals for its annual conference, co-organised with the Eccles Centre for
American Studies at the British Library.


This year’s seminar series sponsored by the Institute of Historical Research has
focused on the theme of Black Women of the political, financial, social, and
intellectual elite. The annual conference will further expand on this theme to
include Black Women’s activism at every level, from the grassroots to the elite
circles, at any point in the history of the Americas.


We encourage proposals for papers, panels or roundtables that engage with the
activism, cultural outputs, social and intellectual networks, and life experiences of
Black Women activists. We are keen to engage with the British Library’s exhibition
on Breaking the News and we would particularly encourage papers focused on
Black women journalists. The day will include a private Show and Tell session of
British Library collection items related to the themes for conference delegates.
The conference welcomes proposals from academics at any stage of their career,
especially graduate students, as well as those active in civil society groups.
