The National Council for Public History will host a poster session on Friday, September 19 at the AASLH Annual Meeting in St. Paul, MN. All history organizations, as well as students in history programs, are invited to submit proposals for the session. The deadline for submissions is June 1.


Posters give graduate students, small museum staff, and others a way to display and discuss their project-based work in a format that is interactive and collegial. Posters are also a perfect venue to show off the material and visual work of historians and public historians. In the sciences, posters are often a way to present preliminary data on a research topic and gather advice, and we understand that most posters for this conference will represent work that is complete, but we encourage presenters to present work as part of multi-year or ongoing projects so they can solicit advice and resources at the conference.
