Missouri Conference on History 2021

Mar 10 – Mar 12, 2021

The sixty-third annual Missouri Conference on History will be held virtually March 10-12. The conference, hosted by the State Historical Society of Missouri, brings together scholars, teachers, and other professional historians to share in the presentation of research, to exchange information on teaching and curriculum, to consider ways to promote the welfare of the profession and general interest in history, and to discuss other concerns common to all historians.

Call for Papers

The Missouri Conference on History is currently accepting paper and panel proposals for the 2021 conference. All proposals should be submitted no later than November 2, 2020

The Missouri Conference on History encourages aspiring and young historians to present their work, and this year's conference features reduced registration fees for students and K-12 teachers. With 2021 representing 200 years of Missouri statehood, the conference is particularly interested in proposals from local organizations, historical societies, and undergraduate and graduate students demonstrating how their work documents and celebrates Missouri's Bicentennial.
