Save The Date! September 28-29, 2012

We hope you will be able to join us for a conference in honor of the one and only Mary Beth Norton, to be held at the A.D. White House on Cornell’s beautiful campus on Friday, September 28th and Saturday, September 29th, 2012.

On Friday, September 28th, participants will gather at the A.D. White House for a series of sessions inspired by distinct aspects of Professor Norton’s scholarship and teaching. That evening, attendees will continue the celebration at a catered reception at the Johnson Art Museum. The conference will conclude with a morning roundtable and brunch on Saturday, September 29th. If you are interested in contributing a brief paper to one of the sessions, please email Molly at mwarsh@tamu.edu or Susanah at ssromney@gmail.com.

The conference is being organized by two of Professor Norton’s former students (and now historians), Susanah Shaw Romney, PhD ’00, and Molly Warsh, BA’99. The event has received generous support from Cornell’s History Department; Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; Society for the Humanities; and numerous other on-campus and off-campus entities.

We are still working out the details and will use this site to keep you posted as more information becomes available.

We hope to see you in September 2012!

–Molly & Susanah
