The thirtieth annual workshop of the Economic History Society Women’s Committee will take place at the John Rylands Library, University of Manchester on Saturday, 23rd November 2019.
The 2019 workshop will explore women’s involvement in and negotiation of the economic practices that built, sustained and resisted empires across the globe from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries. It aims to examine the experiences of a wide range of women, colonisers and colonised, free and enslaved, interrogating the multiple axes of power that shaped the way these women thought and behaved. In doing so, it hopes to investigate new directions and approaches in the fields of economic and women’s history.
