Austin is a city continually redefining itself. It is the state capital, the heart of live music, and a center for technology and innovation. With the famous slogan, “Keep Austin Weird,” it is no surprise that Austin embraces, even advertises, the individualistic spirit that symbolizes Texas. This spirit represents the histories, cultures, communities, and ways of thinking that created one of the most diverse states in the country. I AM History embraces and celebrates the continuing journey of Austin and Texas toward diversity and inclusion. It also connects history to the present day and reminds us that history is relevant and is happening every day, everywhere.

Below, you’ll find fifteen sessions and two keynote addresses from the 2017 AASLH Annual Meeting, each one exploring the theme I AM History.
