We help women historians thrive through events, resources, and community.
The Berkshire Conference of Women Historians is pleased to announce that our triennial conference – The Berkshire Conference on the History of Women, Genders, and Sexualities — will be hosted by Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY on June 1-4, 2017.
The conference theme in 2017 will be:
Difficult Conversations: Thinking and Talking About Women, Genders, and Sexualities Inside and Outside the Academy
The Berkshire Conference on the History of Women (referred to as the Big Berks) was first held in 1973 at Douglass College, Rutgers University. The year 2017 marks the 17th conference and the first with our new name, expanded to include “Genders, and Sexualities”, a change made to reflect the expansion and development of the field.
