Please join us every Thursday night at 8 pm (Eastern) for History Camp Online Winter Series. You can download the schedule for January – March here. You’ll find links to recordings of earlier discussions below.

History Camp began as an in-person annual event in 2014. In 2020 we had to cancel all in-person events and are waiting to see what’s possible in 2021. We’re certainly eager to see all of you in-person. In the mean time, if you’re looking for more information on these in-person events, see our About page or view detailed information on past events in our Locations section.

History Camp, including our Thursday night discussion series, is a project of the non-profit organization The Pursuit of History. Please join us as a member.

Our thanks to the James and Edith Spain Foundation for helping underwrite our series this year. To learn about underwriting these weekly discussions or or any of our other projects, please contact Carrie Lund.
