Conference of Quaker Historians and Archivists (CQHA): 2021 Conference Overview

Call for papers, program and registration information, and guidelines for presenters for the upcoming Conference of Quaker Historians and Archivists.

2021 Conference Overview


The Conference of Quaker Historians and Archivists (CQHA) invites you to attend our 2021 Virtual Conference, June 24-26.

Logistics: We will meet 11:00 am – 4:00 pm EDT each day via Zoom (what's the start-time in my timezone?) (what's the end-time in my timezone?), with built in time for breaks. We thank our colleagues at the Friends Historical Library of Swarthmore College for hosting this event.

Program: Presentations at CQHA, organized into thematic sessions, address aspects of Quaker history across all time periods and locations. Since this year’s program builds on the postponed 2020 conference that would have taken place at Earlham College in Indiana, we are pleased to include several presentations related to Quakers and the American Midwest. In addition, we have been able to take advantage of our virtual format to invite colleagues from several continents to participate in a series of special sessions on historiography and archives in Quaker historical studies. The full CQHA program is available at:

Donations: In recent years when we have met in person, CQHA registration has cost more than $100 per person, excluding meals or lodgings.
