Western History Association Annual Conference 2023

When: October 25-28, 2023

Where: Los Angeles, CA

Join us in Los Angeles for the 2023 Western History Association Conference! This year’s theme is Restoration and Repairs: Lives and Landscapes Across Many Wests. From the program committee, We will gather in downtown Los Angeles in October of 2023. Despite myriad and thorny challenges – as difficult as any across the globe – Los Angeles remains a place open to individual and community reinvention and innovation. Much of this energy is aimed at the future: how will this place, for example, embrace more sustainable patterns of environmental impact as climate change and drought deepen? How will Los Angeles, California, and the greater Wests of North America reckon with systemic racial injustice and right past wrongs through reparative action? How can we–as practitioners, educators, and activists–harness our expertise, and our access to circuits of knowledge and power, so that we can collaborate with stakeholders to reconsider the past in order to reimagine the future?

We look forwarding to seeing you in LA!
