Oklahoma History Conference (virtual)
April 22, 2021–April 23, 2021
The 2021 Oklahoma History Conference is going virtual. Join us April 22–23, 2021 as scholars, students, historians, and authors from across the state and country share the history and culture of Oklahoma. This year the OHS is adding professional development sessions in archival and museum studies.
The theme of the conference is “Perspectives in History.” Sessions will be 45 minutes in length and may include traditional presentations, research sessions, discussion sessions, or lightning talks. In addition, professional development sessions will be included in this year’s schedule.
Call for Proposals — Now Open
The OHS is seeking proposals on a wide range of Oklahoma topics from traditionally underrepresented voices. Possible subjects include Oklahoma minorities in popular culture, women and minorities in Indian and Oklahoma Territories, underrepresented political or religious movements as well as the social, cultural, and political impact of archives and exhibits. Proposals focusing on archival and museum studies are also welcome. We encourage submissions that explore these topics but remain open to submissions addressing other aspects of Oklahoma history. Graduate students are encouraged to submit proposals.
Proposals are now being accepted, and the deadline for submission is Monday, November 30, 2020. Those who submit proposals will be notified of their status by Thursday, December 31, 2020. Registration fees for presenters will be waived. Please visit www.okhistory.org/conference for submission forms and complete information.
