100th Anniversary Phi Alpha Theta History Super-Regional Virtual Conference

March 12-13, 2021

Hosted by the Alpha Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society


On March 14, 1921 Professor Nels Andrew N. Cleven and a group of history students at the University of Arkansas established a University Historical Society. One month later they adopted the name Phi Alpha Theta. Now, 100 years later, the Alpha Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta at the University of Arkansas is pleased to host this special super-regional meeting to celebrate that anniversary and the study of history in all its myriad approaches.  We are pleased to welcome Dr. Karlos Hill, University of Oklahoma, as the keynote speaker to discuss the lessons and legacies of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre.   Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference is held virtually via Zoom with each active link included directly in the agenda. Please note the Community Panel on Race on Friday evening is a Zoom webinar open to the public with link and passcode included in the program. 


Registration is required to receive the full program details.
