The annual conference is usually held Wednesday through Saturday in mid-October and features over fifty sessions on all aspects of the American West, as well as tours to nearby historic sites. The location of the conference changes yearly, with recent conferences held in Denver, Lake Tahoe and Oakland. A highlight of the conference is the annual banquet where WHA awards are presented. Conference programs with registration information will be available online and mailed to members in July.
Graduate Student Spotlight
The Western History Association has created a new page focused on graduate student research. The Graduate Student Spotlight page introduces a WHA graduate student's research project each week and provides a forum for members to respond with constructive and positive feedback.
