Newberry Library Conference, CFP due April 15

Attending to Women, 1100-1800: Performance

September 30-October 1, 2022
Newberry Library

We welcome proposals for workshop sessions. The extended submission deadline is Friday, April 15, 2022.

Workshops are 90-minute sessions organized by a group of two to four leaders who circulate readings, questions, and other materials in advance through the conference website. Leaders spend no more than twenty minutes framing the issues and opening up the conversation, then facilitate active participation and focused discussion. The best workshops are often comparative and interdisciplinary, and all allow participants to share information, pass on knowledge, ask advice, and learn something new. All workshop organizers are expected to register for, attend, and participate in the entire conference, not just their workshop.

For more information about the conference, including a list of plenary speakers and information about submitting a workshop proposal, please visit the conference website here: https://www.newberry.org/09302022-attending-women-1100-1800-performance

If you have any questions about the conference, please send an email to attending@newberry.org
