Poster Session, 2014 Berkshire Conference

The Poster Session aims to connect scholars from across fields and disciplines and provide them with a space to share and discuss current research as well as other presentations that cannot be easily accommodated in a regular panel session, such as work-in-progress, technology-bound projects, and table-sized exhibitions.

We are excited to announce the posters that have been selected! See below or click here.

Séance d’affiches de la conférence Berkshire 2014 sur l’histoire des femmes
Toronto, du 22 au 25 mai 2014

La séance d’affiches vise à relier des chercheur(e)s de tous les domaines et disciplines et à leur fournir un espace dans lequel partager et discuter de leurs recherches en cours. Elle est aussi ouverte à d’autres présentations qui ne peuvent s’intégrer aisément dans un panel régulier, comme les work-in-progress, les projets reliés à des technologies et des expositions du format d’une table.
