AHA Annual Meeting

The Committee on Women Historians Breakfast

AHA Staff, November 2016

The AHA Committee on Women Historians’ annual networking breakfast provides an exciting and unique opportunity to meet scholars across generations working in all fields. We warmly invite women historians and anyone with an interest in gender history to this year’s breakfast.

The breakfast will be held during the Association’s 131st annual meeting, from 8:00 to 9:30 am on Saturday, January 7, 2017, in the Hyatt Regency Denver’s Centennial Ballroom E. The breakfast is co-sponsored by the Berkshire Conference of Women Historians.

The invited speaker, Ada Ferrer, of New York University, will deliver an address titled “All in the Family: Stories and Histories of Revolution and Exile in Cuba.”

Ferrer writes: “Drawing on Landscape for a Good Woman, Carolyn Kay Steedman’s classic exploration of the relationship
between a historian and her working-class mother, this presentation explores connections between family stories of revolution and migration, academic histories of the Cuban Revolution, and the elusive power of recognition that potentially links both.”

The continental breakfast is open to all, but tickets must be purchased when registering for the meeting or by calling 508-743-0510 to add tickets to an existing registration. Prepaid tickets will be distributed with the meeting badge at the registration counters. A limited number of tickets may be available at the meeting.

Cost: $35 members, $50 nonmembers, $15 student members, and $35 student nonmembers. AHA members may bring a student nonmember to the breakfast at the student member rate. Contact aha@historians.org for details.
