A Centenary Celebration of the First Female Fellows of the London Geological Society

  • 10 January 2019

A Centenary Celebration of the First Female Fellows of the London Geological Society is a one-day conference to be held at The Geological Society, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London on 21st May 2019 on the theme of pioneering women geologists.

Call for Expressions of Interest and Abstracts

The conference welcomes proposals for research papers or poster presentations on the historical contribution of women in geology. It is hoped that the presentations will build on and expand the work achieved at an exploratory conference in 2005 “The Role of Women in the History of Geology”.

Any aspects on this subject are acceptable and talks should be up to 30 mins. We welcome abstracts (200 words) until 31st January 2019. Please send expressions of interest, abstracts and enquiries to Professor Cynthia Burek or further information from the conveners.

It is intended to hold a celebration conference dinner and to publish the proceedings.

Conveners: Prof. Cynthia Burek c.burek@chester.ac.uk, Dr. Bettie Higgs b.higgs@ucc.ie and Dr. John Cubitt jmcubitt@gmail.com.
Organised by the History of Geology Group (HOGG).
