“Perspectives in History”: The Oklahoma History Symposium
April 9, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.
The Oklahoma Historical Society will present “Perspectives in History,” the 2022 Oklahoma History Symposium, on Saturday, April 9, at the Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City. This one-day symposium offers scholars, historians, authors, and museum professionals a forum to share their work with history enthusiasts through presentations centered on topics in Oklahoma’s history. Three professional development sessions also will be offered for museum professionals, volunteers, and students.
The symposium will feature a book signing and keynote speech by Connie Cronley, author of A Life on Fire: Oklahoma’s Kate Barnard (University of Oklahoma Press, 2021). Cronley, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, was awarded the 2021 E. E. Dale Award for outstanding book on Oklahoma history from the Oklahoma Historical Society. Attendees may order a boxed lunch from Mediterranean Imports in advance for $12 to enjoy during the keynote, but lunch is not required to attend the speech.
The Oklahoma History Symposium is free and open to the public, but attendees must register in advance. Registration for this event is full!
