Annual Conference

Each December, the Historical Justice and Memory Network holds a multi-day conference that brings affiliates – scholars and practitioners who work in the field of historical dialogue – together. These individuals have the opportunity to present their projects, scholarly papers, and case studies. The conference provides a space for networking, opportunities to share knowledge and experiences, and establishes AHDA’s identity as a forum for historical dialogue. As an annual event, the conference is also used to explore different topics and challenges within the field, and to reach out to a wide cross-section of practitioners and scholars working in the field.
