Kansas Association of Historians

Promoting Historical Scholarship by Kansans for Kansans since 1927

2015 Annual Meeting
April 17 – 18, 2015
Emporia State University, Emporia, KS



The Kansas Association of Historians has been promoting the sharing and learning of history by Kansans for Kansans since 1927.  We encourage KAH conference participation not only by academics, but also by teachers, museum staff, independent scholars, and others passionate about the study of the past or particular aspects of the past.  All activities will be on the second floor of the newly renovated Memorial Union on the east side of campus, 1331 Market St.  Oh, yes--you need not be from Kansas or live in Kansas to participate.  And world history is as welcome as state and local history—it all connects!
