AHA Committee on Women Historians Brainstorming Session

Saturday, January 7, 2012: 9:00 AM-10:00 AM
Sheraton Ballroom V (Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers)
Leora Auslander, University of Chicago
Following the breakfast meeting of the AHA Committee on Women Historians, all interested participants are cordially invited to a brainstorming session to help think through the implications of Barbara Welke’s address as well as the question of the mission of the CWH as we go forward. Barbara Welke will question the ways in which the public and the private, the professional and the personal have come to be divided in university life. That has many obvious benefits but also heavy costs. Have we, in fact, come to the best model or should we be rethinking these divisions? And, in a moment when many gender inequities in our profession appear to have been remedied and the history of women, gender, and sexuality established in most departments, what are the urgent tasks for the CWH?
