Later this week in Toronto, Canada, Clio will join many other historians of women at the Sixteenth Berkshire Conference on the History of Women. The first Berkshire Conference took place at Douglas College, Rutgers University in 1973. The Toronto conference, the 16th of its kind, celebrates the fortieth anniversary of the “Big Berks,” which was held at Harvard University in 1974 (Yes, Clio was there, with a small baby girl in tow). Women’s history is going strong!
Get acquainted with the current work and the scholar-historians who are responsible for getting these stories of women past into our hands. Visit the Berkshire Conference website and check out the online program to see who’s doing what, and learn about the wonderful findings, books, films, and other women’s history activities.
Better yet, come to Toronto if you can. The Big Berks takes place only every three years. It is a grand occasion and a “feel good” experience for all. Clio hopes to see some of you there.
