A one-day interdisciplinary conference: 18th January 2018: University of Hull
Date: Thursday 18th January 2018 (9.30am to 5pm, to be followed by a wine reception and conference dinner)
Location: University of Hull
Keynote Speakers: Dr Ruth Larsen (University of Derby) and Dr Nicola Whyte (University of Exeter)
This one-day conference, organised by PhD students from the Gender, Place and Memory Research Cluster and supported by the Women’s History Network and University of Hull Graduate School aims to bring together scholars, early career researchers and postgraduate researchers working on all aspects of women’s spatial histories between 1500 and 1900. Doreen Massey argued that ‘particular ways of thinking about space and place are tied up with, both directly and indirectly, particular social constructions of gender relations.’ This conference will investigate how women have used their agency to negotiate gender constructions in space-time; and the ways in which women’s agency has been curtailed through constructed spatial limitations.
