Welcome to the website of the International Federation for Research in Women's History/Federation Internationale Pour la Recherche en Histoire des Femmes.
Due to the Global Pandemic of Covid-19, we regret to announce that the Federation's Conference scheduled for 27-29 August 2020 has been postponed until 2021.
The Conference will be hosted during the CISH Conference in Poznań which has also been rescheduled for 2021. See https://ichs2020poznan.pl/en/.
As much as possible, the provisional programme for the IFRWH 2020 conference will remain the same for 2021.
We will provide further updates here as soon as we can.
In the meantime, please take care and keep safe.
