2020 Annual Conference

Given current public health concerns, the 70th annual meeting of the New York State Association of European Historians will now be held online in a scaled-down format on October 24, 2020. This shift will allow us to accommodate a limited number of panel presentations and discussions, while also allowing us to incorporate some “lightning talk” panels about teaching and researching European history in a time of social distancing.

We hope to reconvene in person as usual for our 71st annual meeting at LeMoyne College, NY, in October 2021.

See below for the conference schedule and to register.
