The Arizona Women’s History Alliance presents 2nd Arizona Women’s History Symposium at AZ Heritage Center at Papago Park.
Save the Date: Friday, October 7, 2016
Interested in learning about the history of Arizona women? In researching and writing about Arizona women? In listening to and talking with historians who write about Arizona women? In meeting archivists and others who have research collections?
We invite historians, researchers, archivists, librarians, museum administrators, students and history lovers. The goal of the symposium is to stimulate the audience to participate in conversations about the contributions of Arizona women representing our rich and diversified cultural and social history. It will help identify assumptions about working women’s roles, discuss the importance of placing women in historical context and stimulate thinking about the research, writing and interpretation of women’s history.
This symposium represents the second major public educational project of the Arizona Women's History Alliance (AWHA), a collaboration of the Arizona Women’s Hall of Fame and the Arizona Women’s Heritage Trail. It is an opportunity for attendees to hear and talk to notable scholars and archivists about conducting research on Arizona women, the process of historical inquiry, providing historical context and answering the “so what” questions.
With opening remarks by Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan, this day long symposium will acquaint attendees with the current state of Arizona women’s history.
