Dear all, I have just booked a twin room for single use but I would welcome the opportunity to share my room with one of other speakers, since I am not so familiar with the Kingston area.

Looking for a roommate at the conference?
One of the conference delegates asked if we were aware of any other delegates travelling some distance and possibly looking for a roommate to share accommodation (and therefore accommodation costs!) over the period of the conference. This seems like a great idea, so we are going to create a page on this blog where people can post if they are interested in this. Click on the ‘looking to...
To Women in Magazines from History of Women in the...
From organising one conference (History of Women in the Americas) to another (Women in Magazines), & trying to sort 80+ papers in c24 coherent panels. The phrase ‘herding cats’ springs to mind!

Our Keynote Speakers
We are delighted to announce that the two keynote speakers for Women in Magazines are Noliwe Rooks (Princeton University) and Penny Tinkler (University of Manchester). Both have produced pioneering work in this field & we are so pleased that they are able to come and share this with us.
From the old to the new...
Some great new partners look set to be coming on board with the conference and we’re also pleased to say that we should be having representatives talking about some of the pioneering digitisation projects that have taken place in the last twelve months or so. Between them, they’ll cover the old to the new in terms of women’s magazine publishing!
We’ve had confirmation from one of our keynote speakers and will be making an announcement about who it soon - stay tuned!
Staying at the conference
Summer 2012 is a popular time to be visiting London. As well as the ‘Women in Magazines’ conference, there are also the Olympic and Para-Olympic games (you may have heard about them too!). As a result, we recommend that conference attendees reserve their accommodation as soon as possible. Kingston University has a number of recommended options, listed here: ...

Call for Papers
In November 2011, Woman’s Weekly celebrated its 100 year birthday by including a reproduction of the first issue inside the centenary edition. A month later, US Vogue launched a digital archive containing every page published since 1892. These events remind us of the rich history which lies behind titles that continue to grace the shelves marked ‘women’s magazines’ on both sides of the...
