1) Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,
The 2022 CoH History Conference
“Come One, Come All: Community Events
That Bring Us Together”
Is being postponed until next year, to be held on
Fri., Feb. 24, and Sat. Feb. 25, 2023
(at the same location, at Portuguese Hall, in Pt. Loma).
At that time we hope to be able to hold our
traditional, exciting history conference in-person!
(Details to come in the future.)
Is there an event that defined you, your family, or your community? Was there a gathering that you attended that was pivotal in your life? Is there a gathering that keeps traditions alive? Was the gathering a positive experience, or no? If the event happened or started at least 20 years ago, we want to hear about it (we use 20 years to have some historical perspective). In “Come One, Come All” we want to hear about it!
Historians, researchers, writers, and storytellers: Each year the Congress of History presents a history conference on topics that reflect our region. We’ve done conferences on big themes (like the impact of world wars on the region). This year we seek talks about events that have importance to you. You don’t have to be a professional speaker, writer, or historian. Great presentations come from those who care!
