The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will host the 56th Annual Northern Great Plains History Conference Sept. 23-25 at the Lismore Hotel in Eau Claire.
The annual migrating conference welcomes scholars, public historians, undergraduate and graduate students from the Great Plains of the U.S. and the prairies of Canada to present their research, papers, panels and roundtables, addressing subjects from around the globe and throughout time.
Each year, the Northern Great Plains History Conference (NGPHC) bestows its highest honor, the Larry Rowen Remele Award, to a council member who has made significant contributions to the betterment of the conference. Remele was a longtime editor of the North Dakota History, a regional history journal, and was the council chair at the time of his unexpected death in 1988.
This year’s Remele Award goes for the first time to a Blugold faculty member, Dr. Robert Gough, professor emeritus of history, who was a member of the UW-Eau Claire faculty from 1981-2011. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE.
