The 2021 MASS HISTORY CONFERENCE will be held online on June 7, 2021, with additional workshops and networking events on the Mass History Commons on six other dates in June.
Engaging public history, including local history activities, is crucial to the civic well-being of our communities, our Commonwealth, and our nation. The conference will focus on history as a community activity, with more than fifteen sessions and workshops, a plenary by community history scholar Diana Becerra, a Commons area with tabling, and plenty of opportunities to meet and greet, network, exchange ideas and hatch plans and collaborations. Due to ongoing concerns about Covid-19, this year’s conference will be held online. But as soon as we can, we will return to meeting each other face to face!
