The sixty-third annual Missouri Conference on History, hosted by the State Historical Society of Missouri, will be held March 10-12, 2021.

Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19, this year's conference will be held in a digital format, including webinars, plenaries, exhibitors, and breakout sessions.

Paper, panel, and student poster proposals in all fields of history, including public history and historic preservation, are invited.

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.

All proposals should be submitted no later than November 2, 2020.
