Come Experience the Power of Possibility!
2015 AASLH Annual Meeting
Early Bird Rate Ends July 24!
Nothing can replace the opportunities that arise when you intersect with people coming together around common goals and interests—in our case, good history and good times.
Join us for sessions, exhibits, tours, workshops, and more…including a downtown block party on Museum Row, and three superb plenary events:
- On Thursday – Sam Wineburg, a historian of education at Stanford University. Wineburg wrote Historical Thinking and Other Unnatural Acts: Charting the Future of Teaching the Past, an award-winning book that has reverberated among educators at all levels.
- Friday Plenary Address – KET personality Renee Shaw will moderate a conversation between Kentucky State Historian James C. Klotter and world-renown naturalist, prolific author, celebrated poet, and farmer Wendell Berry, once described as “a great contrary example to the compromises others take in stride.”
- Carol Kammen, co-author of Zen and the Art of Local History and The Encyclopedia of Local History, will be the Awards Banquet Speaker. A regular columnist in History News, Kammen received the AASLH Award of Distinction, our highest honor, in 2007.
