Every December, the Historical Dialogues, Justice and Memory Network holds a multi-day conference that brings together scholars and practitioners who work in the field of historical dialogue. These individuals have the opportunity to present their projects, scholarly papers, and case studies. The conference provides a space for networking, opportunities to share knowledge and experiences, and establishes AHDA’s identity as a forum for historical dialogue. As an annual event, the conference is also used to explore different topics and challenges within the field, and to reach out to a wide cross-section of practitioners and scholars working in the field. 2017 will mark the sixth annual conference.
