Frontier Airlines Center
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Wednesday, April 18 to Sunday, April 22, 2012

On the one-hundredth anniversary of two of the most potent third-party presidential challenges in U.S. history, the Organization of American Historians and the National Council on Public History will meet in Milwaukee, a shoreline city where immigrant leaders initiated innovative public policies during the industrial era. Panels will address the shaping role of evolving market systems, class relations, and migrations over the long chronological sweep of American history, and explore the frontiers of social imagination and/or territorial encounters that have altered understandings of other peoples and traditions. The meeting also will include a live broadcast of Backstory with the American History Guys.
