AASLH Conversations

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.

Webinar Description

As universities and colleges have shifted to all online instruction in response to COVID-19, many professors and students have had to quickly adapt to a new education environment. Join Katie Stringer Clary, Abigail Gautreau, and Tara White for a discussion on some of the lessons they have learned so far and what the future of education may hold.
