Echoes: The 47th Annual D.C. History Conference


Echoes, a virtual conference on D.C. history, will take place November 12-14. During a year of upheaval, loss, pandemic, and protest, explore the shared frequencies between moments in D.C. history and our contemporary era at the virtual event. Together, we reflect on the history of the city and its resonances through panels on social movements, domestic histories, and the built environment. We’ll consider the impact of COVID-19 on cultural institutions and community-building and experience innovative virtual programming from local museums. Brandi Summers will deliver the Letitia Woods Brown Memorial Lecture, and Melanie Adams (Director, Anacostia Community Museum) will join for the Opening Plenary.

Copresented in 2020 by the DC History Center and American University, the D.C. History Conference has, since 1973, provided a friendly and rigorous forum for discussing and promoting original research about the history of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Click to Register.*
