2021 Oklahoma History Conference
Thursday, April 22, and Friday, April 23, 2021
The 2021 Oklahoma History Conference is going virtual! Join us April 22–23 as scholars, students, historians, and authors from across the state and country share the history and culture of Oklahoma. This year’s lineup will include eleven live sessions, two programs, and eleven on-demand sessions. The entire conference will be online, including a special tribute to the late Steve Ripley from the Red Dirt Rangers and the Oklahoma Historians Hall of Fame Induction and Awards Ceremony. We are proud to announce the conference keynote speaker will be celebrated poet, author, and musician Joy Harjo.
Joy Harjo's keynote presentation will take place on April 22, Noon - 12:50 pm CT
The 2021 theme is “Perspectives in History.” This theme was designed to encourage presentations sharing the story of underrepresented groups, less-known topics, and new points of view.
We are pleased to announce that the 2021 conference is free to the public, but preregistration is required.
