The Albert M. Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women’s Education, housed at Bryn Mawr College Special Collections, has recently been awarded a grant from The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation in support of the Digital Center’s second conference, Women’s History in a Digital World 2015.
The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation promotes the advancement and perpetuation of humanistic inquiry and artistic creativity by encouraging excellence in scholarship and in the performing arts, and by supporting research libraries and other institutions which transmit our cultural heritage.
With the Foundation’s support, Women’s History in the Digital World will be held on Bryn Mawr’s campus on May 21–22, 2015. It aims to bring together experts, novices, and all those in between to share insights, lessons, and resources for the many projects emerging at the crossroads of history, the digital humanities, and women’s and gender studies. Continuing a conversation begun at our inaugural meeting in 2013, the conference will feature the work of librarians and archivists, faculty, students, and other stakeholders in the development of women’s and gender histories within digital scholarship. The conference will feature a keynote address by Claire Bond Potter, professor of history and co-director of the Humanities Action Lab at The New School for Public Engagement, also known for her regular column, “Tenured Radical,” in The Chronicle for Higher Education.
The 2015 Call For Papers is now available on the Digital Center’s blog:
