Pacific Northwest History Conference 3

The Pacific Northwest has long been a place of contested spaces. As we embark on a new decade and upcoming presidential election, profound demographic, economic, political, and cultural changes continue to shape struggles over power, rights, and freedoms in the region. Yet, these societal challenges have also produced different forms of resistance by diverse groups of people to engineer social change.

Last year’s conference was held online by the Washington State Historical Society from October 20-23, 2020. TheĀ  event was a gathering of historians, scholars from other disciplines, museum professionals, K-12 educators, archivists, historic preservationists, graduate students, and history enthusiasts who had the opportunity to consider power and resistance in the Pacific Northwest.
