The Women’s Collections Section (WCS) of the Society of American Archivists (SAA) are seeking panel proposals and presentations for the WCS section meeting to be held June 20, 2023 at 1PM CST/2PM EST!
This year we are seeking proposals that focus on creative strategies and innovative means repositories are using to highlight stories of women and gender non-conforming individuals. This call extends to repositories that may fall outside traditional bounds and collections that are not traditionally seen as being “women’s collections.”
We especially invite proposals that highlight stories of Queer and Trans individuals and people of color. Please email your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals will be reviewed by the WCS section steering committee. They will be prioritizing proposals that intentionally address critical and anti-oppressive research and practices.
The deadline for all proposals is Friday, May 19, 2023. Notifications will be sent out by Monday, May 29, 2023.
Feel free to email the WCS co-chairs at email@example.com with any questions or concerns!
