The organisers of the international “Convention and revolution life writing by women in the 1800s and 1900s: archives, critiques and methods” conference have invited participation from researchers of life writing, herstory, and (oral) history.

The conference will be held in Warsaw on 29 November– 1 December 2017, organised by the team behind the Women’s Archive, a division of the Institute of Literary Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

The conference will focus on discussing the latest methods of working with women’s personal documents and biographies written on their basis. We are interested in strategies developed in contemporary historiography and literature studies, in particular interdisciplinary women’s, gender and queer studies. As for historical periods, we are interested mainly in the 1800s and the 1900s up to World War II.
