The California Council for the Promotion of History’s annual conference will convene in the Sierra foothill gold rush towns of Sonora, Jamestown and Columbia, October 21-23. Join us to explore the theme: What’s So Funny About History? Funny has greased political and economic wheels, disarmed and emboldened, spoken truth to power, and earned this State a reputation for creative spontaneity and a high tolerance for odd-balls. In all of this, funny has been a powerful agent of historical change. The 2010 Program Committee invites proposals that are serious in historical intent but playful in content, spirit, and style of presentation. As always, CCPH welcomes presentations by students, avocational historians, new and seasoned professionals.
