EWHP-NEHA 2020 CONFERENCE JULY 13 – 16, 2020 BALTIMORE, MARYLAND WOMEN TRANSFORMING THE CHURCH: PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE

The Episcopal Women’s History Project and The National Episcopal Historians and Archivists present an exciting 2020 event. The Conference will focus on the work and impact of women in the Episcopal Church. Papers and presentations related to the conference theme, Women Transforming the Church: Past, Present and Future are inviting to submit an idea. Papers and Presentations can be 20 to 40 minutes. A Presentation usually offers content new information not presented before. The study may vary (it could have been an experiment, survey, interview, or something other), but in all cases, raw data has been collected and analyzed by the author, and conclusions are drawn from the results of that analysis. A Paper is usually written about existing articles and does not report original research. A paper presents review information, used to suggest new research directions, to strengthen support for existing theories and/or identify patterns among existing research studies. Researchers often find papers provide a great overview of the existing information that opens doors to new ideas.
