Live Webinar: AASLH Conversations: Preparing for the 250th Anniversary

February 9, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

AASLH Conversations

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented crisis in our local communities, country, and world. Many are seeking answers and guidance during this time, and AASLH has been listening to the concerns from the history community. In response, we are offering more online content including the new AASLH Conversations webinar series. While no one has all the answers, we hope these topic-focused conversations will provide a space to share ideas to help us all keep moving forward.

We know many organizations are facing financial strain due to the pandemic, so we developed AASLH Conversations with that in mind. We have drastically reduced the registration fee and are also providing a special promo code to waive the registration fee completely.

This conversation has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.

Webinar Description

Now that the calendar has turned to 2021, we’re just five years away from the commemoration of the United States’ 250th anniversary in 2026. This webinar will provide an update about the status of planning at the national and state levels, discuss AASLH’s goals for the commemoration, offer insight about what to expect from AASLH and other organizations in the coming years, and suggest steps your organizations can begin taking to prepare for this anniversary. The 250th anniversary represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity for history professionals and history institutions, and we hope this webinar will help all of us prepare to take advantage.
