The History of Women Religious of Britain and Ireland network is a lively community of scholars that includes academics, archivists, students and others interested in the history of women religious from medieval to modern times. The network hosts an annual conference which in 2018 will return to Galway for a second time where it will be organised by myself and RECIRC P.I., Marie-Louise Coolahan. We look forward to welcoming many of you to Galway next year for lots of #nuntastic-ness – see our CFP below!
The 2018 History of Women Religious of Britain and Ireland (H-WRBI) Annual Conference will take place at the Moore Institute, National University of Ireland, Galway, from 7-8 June. The conference will explore the history of women religious across a broad chronological timeframe, from medieval to modern.
We invite proposals (for 20-minute papers) that engage with the theme, ‘Space, Place and the History of Women Religious’. Proposals might consider, for example:
• International and Transnational Perspectives
• Buildings and Architectural Planning
• Lived Experiences of Space
• Mobility and Geography
• Visualisations/Imagery of Space
• Archives, Women Religious and Space
• Gendered/Contested Space
• Space, Place and Identity
We invite both individual and panel proposals. Proposals from postgraduate students are particularly welcome. Please send abstracts (max. 200 words), together with a short biography (100 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 9 February 2018.
