Register now to join historians, educators, and other history professionals in sharing new scholarship. Hosted this year by SHSMO, the Missouri Conference on History will open with a reception sponsored by the Boone County Historical Museum and Galleries.
"The Missouri Conference on History brings together teachers of history and other professional historians to share in the presentation of the results of research, to exchange information on teaching and curriculum, to consider ways to promote interest in history and the welfare of the profession, and to discuss other concerns common to all historians. All persons interested or involved in the teaching of history, historical research, historical preservation, or any other professional application of history are welcome."
The keynote luncheon, sponsored by the Missouri Humanities Council, will feature Center for Missouri Studies Fellowship winner Patrick Huber, a professor of history at Missouri University of Science and Technology. He will explore historical memory in his hometown, Ste. Genevieve, regarding the race riot that occurred there in 1930.
On the evening of March 10, the conference will celebrate women’s contributions to Missouri government with a public interview of Gracia Yancey Backer, the first female majority floor leader in the Missouri House of Representatives. The conference will culminate in the awards luncheon, also sponsored by the Missouri Humanities Council.
