<email@example.com> Date: Saturday, November 9, 2013 10:21 PM Subject: Call For Papers: 2014 Berks Poster Session ------------------ Call For Papers: Poster Session, 2014 Berkshire Conference on the History of Women: Toronto, May 22-25, 2014 Proposals Due: November 29 We seek proposals for the Poster Session to be held at the 2014 Berkshire Conference on the History of Women at the University of Toronto. Submissions are welcome on any topic, from any discipline, following the broader theme of the conference, Histories on the Edge/Histoires sur la br¨¨che. The Poster Session aims to connect scholars from across fields and disciplines and provide them with a space to share and discuss current research as well as other presentations that cannot be easily accommodated in a regular panel session, such as work-in-progress, technology-bound projects, and table-sized exhibitions. Undergraduate students, graduate students, non-affiliated scholars, and those not already on the Conference program, are strongly encouraged to apply. Presenters will be required to format and print their own poster, which should not exceed the limit of 36” x 48”. Further guidelines and information will be provided upon selection. Submissions for the Poster Session should include the following: - A completed application form (see below) - A 250 word abstract - A one-page CV that includes your name, affiliation, and contact information - A simple mock-up of the display Please send your submission and any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org as one pdf document by November 29, 2013. Information is also available at http://berksconference.org/. Please send this form, along with a 250-word abstract, CV, and poster mock-up to email@example.com by November 29, 2013.
