Conference dates: 22-25 June, 2022* 

Location: University of Edinburgh

Plenary Speaker: Professor Melani McAlister (George Washington University )

Historians of the Twentieth Century United States (HOTCUS) is delighted to invite paper and panel proposals for our 2022 annual conference. Following the success of our first online conference in 2021, we are developing a hybrid format for 2022, with a range of both in-person and online events.

We hope that this will accommodate those who want to meet in person in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, while also ensuring accessible offerings for all who wish to join us digitally. We will, of course, be keeping a close eye on government advice, and can pivot to an online-only event if necessary.

The Call for Papers for the conference can be found here.

* Please note that the conference will take place within the specified window of June 22-25, 2022, but the total number of days for the conference may depend on the number of submissions, and the general preference for online or in-person activities. While many members will want to make travel plans, the COVID situation and hybrid nature of the conference does make things harder to plan with certainty, and so we have selected dates that allow a day or two of flexibility at this point.
