2021 Oklahoma History Conference “Perspectives in History”
Thursday, April 22, and Friday, April 23, 2021
The 2021 Oklahoma History Conference is going virtual! Join us April 22–23 as scholars, students, historians, and authors from across the state and country share the history and culture of Oklahoma. This year’s lineup will include eleven live sessions, two programs, and eleven on-demand sessions. The entire conference will be online, including a special tribute to the late Steve Ripley from the Red Dirt Rangers and the Oklahoma Historians Hall of Fame Induction and Awards Ceremony. We are proud to announce the conference keynote speaker will be celebrated poet, author, and musician Joy Harjo.
The 2021 theme is “Perspectives in History.” This theme was designed to encourage presentations sharing the story of underrepresented groups, less-known topics, and new points of view.
This year we have expanded conference offerings to include professional development sessions. These presentations will be of particular interest to museum and archive professionals, historical and genealogical societies, students, and educators.
We are pleased to announce that the 2021 conference is free to the public, but preregistration is required.
This series is sponsored in part by Oklahoma Humanities (OH) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of OH or NEH.
