The Editorial Collective of Lilith: A Feminist History Journal is pleased to announce a one-day symposium intended to celebrate and build upon the rich tradition of placing the body at the centre of feminist historical analysis. The symposium will explore how gendered norms are reflected, reinscribed and contested through bodies, and encourage consideration of new methods and sources for studying the elusive bodies of the past.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Joanna Bourke, Professor of History at Birkbeck, University of London
  • Joy Damousi, Professor of History at The University of Melbourne and Kathleen Fitzpatrick Australian Laureate Fellow

The symposium is supported by the ANU Gender Institute and the School of History, and will be fully catered and free to attend. All participants must be Lilith subscribers.
