“Revolutions” in World History

February 25, 2023
Texas A&M University-Commerce
Commerce, Texas

The 2023 World History Association of Texas Conference will be held Saturday, February 25, 2023 on at the Sam Rayburn Student Center at Texas A&M University – Commerce with the theme ‘Revolutions in World History.’

We have an exciting day planned with over twenty papers on research and teaching world history, a special session on world history in Texas high schools, and a fascinating keynote address by Dr. Sam W. Haynes from The University of Texas at Arlington and author of Unsettled Land: From Revolution to Republic, The Struggle for Texas (2022).

Attendees and presenters receive entry into all panels, the keynote address, morning and afternoon coffee breaks, and a delicious catered lunch. For those who wish to stay later we will have our closing reception at the local Cork & Brew wine bar and pub, with a variety of light appetizers included (attendees may purchase their own beverage of choice).

In early February our WHAT conference page will include this information on the conference, securing a guest parking permit, and accommodations. The conference program will also be available in early February with every attempt made to honor special requests.

Registration is $30 for faculty and teachers, $15 for students. All participants and attendees must register for the conference.
