Fall meeting of the Berkshire Conference of Women’s Historians June 1-3, 2018
The Berkshire Conference of Women Historians invites you to attend its annual business meeting, better known as the Little Berks from Friday-Sunday, June 1-3, 2018 at Pheasant Run Resort in Mt. Pleasant, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, accessible from both O’Hare and Midway (4051 East Main Street, St. Charles, Illinois 60174-9854). We welcome all members of the Berks to attend this weekend of networking, professional development, and feminist institution building.
We have negotiated an affordable rate for the hotel. Singles and doubles are $159 night and that includes buffet breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. The only additional cost will be approximately $140 for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights. We can offer local people or those not staying at the resort, dinner for either night at $70 (both would be $140). The Berks will provide wine and non-alcoholic drinks for dinner both nights. Attendees are on their own for lunch. As we get closer to June, we will have vegetarian options at all meals, but please let us know if you have other dietary restrictions. Please register to reserve meals by MAY 10.
Please note there is *no registration fee* to attend the Little Berks, but registration is required and the form can be accessed here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1tg4aKXsqFTb2VP76E07U6v0r8lai2UtODkgF6Bg1-3g/viewform?edit_requested=true
SUBVENTIONS: To encourage the participation of graduate students, the unemployed, contingent faculty and others for whom cost may prevent attendance, the Berkshire Conference offers such attendees a subvention of up to 50% of room and board costs, along with up to 30% for untenured faculty members. If you would like to request a subvention, please email Jennifer Brier, Vice President and Sandra Dawson, Executive Administrator.
