Joint NCPH-Utah Division of State History 2024 CFP open through July 15

The National Council on Public History and the Utah Division of State History (Utah Historical Society) jointly call for proposals for our 2024 conference next April 10-13, 2024 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

This year’s theme, “Historical Urgency,” asks public historians to weigh the many critical priorities of our field to tackle the most pressing—including putting history to work in service of democracy, protecting our field and its workers, combating the environmental effects of climate change, collecting oral histories from elder generations, and more. Read the full CFP and find the submission forms at (Submit an optional topic proposal for feedback and offers of collaboration by June 12!) 

When filling out your proposal, please consider whether you would like to be considered for the full National Council on Public History conference (spread throughout, April 10-13) or for Utah State History’s content on Friday, April 12, 2024. Submissions for Utah State History will be evaluated by a smaller subset of the Program Committee local to Utah. Utah State History members are welcome to submit for the full conference if you prefer, but these submissions will be evaluated by other members of the full Program Committee.
