The Western Association of Women Historians (WAWH, www.wawh.org) held their annual meeting on the first weekend in May at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice (peace.sandiego.edu) at the University of San Diego. Inspired by the beautiful hilltop setting, the 160 attendees enjoyed a variety of panels and social occasions. One of the pleasures of WAWH meetings is the frequent opportunity for conversation and conviviality, and this year the organized venues included two receptions, lunch on both Friday and Saturday, a light supper on Friday, and the awards banquet on Saturday. This year was also the first time that a book exhibit was included.
