Hosted by The University of Virginia's College at Wise

Once again, the time has come to prepare to register for the annual gathering of the Society of Appalachian Historians. This year's event marks the ninth time that we Appalachian historians have gotten together to discuss the discipline and the region. This year we are pleased to name as our host the Center for Appalachian Studies at UVA-Wise. The meeting itself will be at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center in Abingdon, Virginia. We are fortunate to have such strong support among our colleagues and friends from across the Appalachian region, the country, and abroad. 

In the spirit of Cullowhee, the annual meetings of the Society of Appalachian Historians are designed to provide an inviting forum for the dissemination and discussion of innovative historical scholarship on any aspect of Appalachia. Please plan to attend and encourage others, particularly your friends, colleagues, and students working on Appalachian topics, to join us. We look forward to seeing you soon!
