The Annual Eastern Sierra History Conference seeks to enhance awareness, enrich knowledge, and generate recognition of the diverse and complex heritage of the Eastern Sierra region.

The 8th Annual History Conference will be held October 27-29, 2023 at Cerro Coso Community College, Eastern Sierra Campus, 4090 W Line St, Bishop, CA.

We are seeking presentations on the history and culture of the Eastern Sierra, the contiguous geographic areas of the Sierra Nevada and the Great Basin, along with research that may have taken place outside of the region but is related to the history of the area. Selected presenters will have their papers published in the Eastern Sierra History Journal, a digital publication that is sponsored by ESIA and the Claremont Colleges. A broad range of topics will be considered.

If interested in presenting please submit a maximum 250 words abstract along with a brief biographical statement to Gena Wood, Program Operations Director, by June 16, 2023. 

Registration for the event opens on July 14, 2023.
