The Lilith Editorial Collective invites proposals for 20-minute papers that reflect on and explore these themes and more. We invite proposals from scholars across academic disciplines, and particularly encourage postgraduate and early career researchers to submit proposals. We also encourage scholars outside of Australia to apply please indicate in your submission if you are based outside of Australia, and we will endeavour to schedule your paper at an accessible time. Keynote speakers for the symposium will be announced soon. Symposium participants will be invited to submit article-length versions of their papers to Lilith: A Feminist History Journal for a 2022 special issue.
As a special measure for this year's symposium, the AWHN will be awarding two prizes: best paper by a student currently enrolled in a higher research degree programme (inside or outside of Australia), and best paper by an early-career academic who received their PhD in the past five years. These prizes take the place of the travel bursaries that would typically be supported given the symposium's online format. Prize winners will receive $300 and a citation from the judges on the strengths of their paper, the runner-up in each category will receive $200.
All participants in the symposium who want to be considered for these prizes will need to submit a written version of their paper (maximum 3000 words not including referencing) by 5pm Sunday 19 September AEST. The papers will then be reviewed by the judging panel. The prizes for best papers will then be awarded at the close of the symposium on 24 September.
The symposium will be held online over Thursday 23 September and Friday 24 September 2021.
Please email a 200-word abstract and 150 word biographical note to email@example.com by 30 April 2021.
