Subject: STICK CFP - 100 years of women in engineering, 6th November 2019 at Glasgow Women’s Library. [From the Mersenne list. To the extent programming is a kind of engineering, the following should be of interest. --WM] Call for papers: 100 Years of Women in Engineering (https://stickssn.org/call-for-papers-100-years-of-women-in-engineering/) The Scottish Transport and Industrial Collections Knowledge Network (STICK) invites proposals for talks (around 30 minutes long) at our annual conference on 6^th November 2019 at Glasgow Women’s Library. 2019 marks the centenary of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES). The Society was founded to support women engineers who, although welcomed into the profession during World War One, were often told “not to get comfortable” and came under pressure at the end of the war to leave the workforce to release jobs for men returning from the forces. The Women’s Engineering Society sought to resist this pressure, but also to promote engineering as a rewarding job for women as well as men. The STICK conference seeks to celebrate 100 years of WES and women in engineering. We are looking for speakers on this topic that will celebrate the successes of women in engineering both past and present, explore the challenges around telling these stories and engage in the debate. We recognise the topic is very broad and would welcome a wide range of submissions. Proposals for papers might include, but are not limited to, the following areas: * The untold histories of women working in engineering and associated industries * How women took advantage of opportunities created by war and changing social norms to enter the engineering profession * Creating change and challenging practice in the interpretation and care of transport, engineering and industrial collections * Addressing past or present inequality in opportunity, pay or prospects of women in engineering and associated industries The deadline for submissions is 28^th June 2019. To submit or for any further enquiries please contact Matthew Bellhouse Moran at firstname.lastname@example.org _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: email@example.com List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
