2015 Conference

CLAW was proud to be a major sponsor of the Southern Association for Women Historians (SAWH) tenth triennial conference, to be held June 11-14, 2015 at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina. Co-sponsored by the College of Charleston, The Citadel, and Clemson University, the conference provided a stimulating and congenial forum for discussing all aspects of women’s history. Its program aimed to reflect the best in recent scholarship and the diversity of our profession, including university professors, graduate students, museum curators, public historians, and independent scholars. Conference sessions addressed all aspects of women’s and gender history, particularly presentations that explore the conference themes of public history, tourism, memory, historic commemoration, and marketing history.
