27th Annual Advanced Placement American History Conference

American Identities

Your choice of one day between Tuesday, March 28–Friday, March 31, 2017
9 a.m.–1:30 p.m.

Who or what are “Americans”? How has the definition of “American” been constructed and redefined over time? Since the late 19th century, historical changes, movements, and phenomena such as immigration, industrialization, mass culture, migration, regionalism, mass consumption, civil rights movements, and multiculturalism have reshaped national identity. The 27th annual Advanced Placement American History Conference explores the relationships between different social, ethnic, racial, and regional groups and American national identity. Insightful seminars offered by local college and university professors challenge students to think critically and engage in in-depth discussions about the history of the United States since the late 19th century.

Seminar topics and presenters will be finalized this winter.
