AASLH 2020 annual meeting

The 2020 Annual Meeting will be held online on September 24-30.

The 2020 Annual Meeting will look different this year as we will gather online rather than a hotel or convention center, however, the AASLH staff and program committee are working hard to carry as much of our original conference programming forward as possible. In addition, the flexibility of this year’s online format will offer greater relevancy, allowing us to create new sessions that speak to our theme in ways we had not anticipated just a few short months ago. The conference will address questions that are emerging from the pandemic, such as defining what history institutions will look like and how they will operate in and after the recovery. We will also continue to examine the unique roles that history museums, historic sites, historical societies, and other history organizations, including AASLH, must play in combating systematic racism, among the nation’s most deep-seated societal challenges.

AASLH staff are excited to work with the Program and Host committees, presenters, and other AASLH members to make this year’s Annual Meeting a unique, rich, and accessible experience. Conference registration will open in early August. The conference schedule will also be released at that time.
