Live Webinar: AASLH Conversations: Empathetic Audience Engagement During a Crisis
- Registration Closed
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented crisis in our local communities, country, and world. Many are seeking answers and guidance during this time, and AASLH has been listening to the concerns from the history community. In response, we are offering more online content including the new AASLH Conversations webinar series. While no one has all the answers, we hope these topic-focused conversations will provide a space to share ideas to help us all keep moving forward.
We know many organizations are facing financial strain due to the pandemic, so we developed AASLH Conversations with that in mind. We have drastically reduced the registration fee and are also providing a special promo code to waive the registration fee completely.
This conversation has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
In a follow up to her blogpost, “Empathetic Audience Engagement During The Apocalypse,” AASLH invites you to join independent consultant and master educator Andrea Jones (Peak Experience Lab) for a thoughtful conversation about grieving a loss of normalcy during the current pandemic while also making progress towards forging new identities in our field.
