(INDIANAPOLIS) - Building on the success of last year's Hoosier Women at Work conference, the Indiana Historical Bureau and the Indiana State Library will host "Hoosier Woman at Work in Science, Technology, and Medicine," a women's history symposium, on April 1, at the Indiana State Library and Historical Building in downtown Indianapolis.

This one-day conference will explore and expand our knowledge of women's contributions to Indiana's science, technology, and medical fields via speakers, presentations, and panel discussions. Possible topics include: inventors/inventions; medical breakthroughs; agriculture and technology; public health; sanitation; exposure to hazardous materials in the work place; access to medical care; hospitals; women's access to training and employment in any of these fields; and the impact of science, technology, and medicine on complicating or improving women's lives.

Of special interest to the archaeology community will be the session including the presentations "Women Behind the Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology" and "Archaeology, Sexism, and Scandal: The Long-Suppressed Story of One Woman's Discoveries and the Man Who Stole Credit for Them."
