BERKS 2020

Welcome to the Berkshire Conference of Women Historians 2020 virtual exhibit

The 2020 Berkshire Conference of Women Historians in Baltimore has been cancelled because of concerns about the potential spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Since we can’t get together in Philadelphia, let’s get together here! Below you’ll find the same kind of information we’d make available at our  Berks exhibit: news about new books, a chance to meet with an editor, and more.

And, from now until August 15th, we’re offering a 50% Big Berks conference discount with free shipping (on orders over $25.00). See below for sale details and ordering information.

Meet Our Women’s History Editor

Lisa Bayer
Director, University of Georgia Press

I will miss seeing you this year at the Big Berks, and wish you and your loved ones patience, strength, and good cheer in these extraordinarily challenging times.

As always, I am especially interested in non-traditional projects on any number of topics in women’s history or the history of gender and sexuality. I’d love to talk to you and catch up on what you have been working on. Please get in touch and let us know how you’d like to get together: phone, email, or online meeting.

Although not necessary before we meet, if you’d like to submit a full book proposal, please click here for general guidelines.
