The 22nd annual Conference on Illinois History, hosted by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum (ALPLM), will be online this year. Jacob K. Friefeld, Illinois and Midwest studies historian at the ALPLM, will open the conference. Scholars from across the U.S. will present 20 sessions on some fascinating subjects, such as the culture and legacy of Native Americans, the politics of art and performance and antebellum Illinois. The conference includes plenary sessions led by Cinnamon Catlin-Legutko, director of the Illinois State Museum, and Kristin Hoganson, author of The Heartland: An American History. Multiple sessions offering professional development credits for teachers are also scheduled. The conference is free, however donations are welcome.
