Taking as its inspiration the fact that 2015 marks the 25th anniversary of the first Attending to Early Modern Women conference, the ninth conference, « It’s About Time, » will focus on time and its passing, allowing us to archive our achievements, reflect on the humanities in the world today, and shape future directions in scholarship and teaching. The conference will be held at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Continuing Education in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, within easy walking distance of the lakeshore, the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Milwaukee Public Museum, and the Amtrak station. Conference attendees will stay in the near-by and newly renovated Doubletree Hotel. Attendees will also have the opportunuity to participate in a special pre-conference seminar on Wednesday June 17 at the Center for Renaissance Studies at the Newberry Library in Chicago.
The conference features a keynote address by Prof. Fran Dolan, UC-Davis, « It’s about Time and Terroir: Gender and the Story of English Wine, » plus 12 plenary talks and 44 workshops. There will also be a special pre-conference workshop at the Newberry Library, Wednesday June 17.
