This tenth annual Massachusetts History Conference is titled "Never Done: Interpreting the History of Women at Work in Massachusetts" and noted Harvard scholar Laurel Thatcher Ulrich will give the keynote. The stories of lesser-known women change-makers get lost in the larger narrative of industry, politics and conflict, but the timing is right for an examination of their tales of great and compelling variety, of lives lived with courage and determination. The conference is widely celebrated as the best networking and skill-sharing opportunity for historians of our state culture. Join us.

Every historic site has women as part of their history, but all too often these women remain invisible, relegated to the side lines. Created to enhance your site's historic interpretation and programming, the workshop provides an overview of site-based women's history, its importance, and the benefits of incorporating it into existing interpretation, preservation, and research.
