The American Association for State and Local History’s Annual Meeting is September 18-21 in Birmingham, Alabama. This year’s meeting, Turning points “Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things”, is held in partnership with the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience. The meetings is a perfect opportunity to examine questions facing any local history institution: how to tell the stores of ordinary people and their extraordinary lives, how to make history interesting and relevant today, how to encourage public participation, and how to turn challenges into success.
AASLH’s Small Museums community is offering $500 scholarships to any AASLH members who are full-time, part-time, paid, or volunteer employees of small museums. A small museum is defined as one with a budget of under $250,000. Applicants must be either an individual member of AASLH or work for an institutional member. The scholarship will cover the cost of registration for the meeting, and any remaining funds can be used to offset the cost of travel or lodging expenses. The application deadline is June 15.
