From Vice President Chris Span:

HES Membership,

I am so excited about the forthcoming virtual conference November 5-8.  Together, we will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the History of Education Society.  I look forward to meeting and greeting all of you.

Very soon a tentative conference program, and how to register for this year’s virtual conference, will be posted on the HES website.  Please visit the site for details on the conference.

Below, are remaining Affinity Group Zoom sessions.

I want to thank all who have made these pre-conference activities a success.
