Hosted by the Stanford Historical Society and the Stanford University Archives, History in Community is a two-day conference with the goal of engaging Bay Area communities on the subjects of community history and historical preservation. It will provide opportunities for community members and organizations to broaden their knowledge of community history projects, reflect on the unique challenges of documenting local histories, and learn from each other during presentations and informal exchanges.

Featuring practitioners from Stanford and Bay Area partner organizations, the conference will include a plenary session, concurrent panels, and historical preservation tours and demonstrations.

Separately, several pre- and post-conference online workshops on archiving and oral history are also available for registration.

Student scholarships are available by application.

The conference and the additional online workshops are made possible in part by a grant from the County of Santa Clara’s Historic Grant Program.
