48th Annual ACH Conference, Havana

14-17 May 2017

The Association of Caribbean Historians (ACH) Executive Committee is pleased it announce that the 49th Annual Conference of the Association of Caribbean Historians will be held in Tobago.

The ACH  is an independent, non-profit, professional organization devoted to the promotion of Caribbean history from a multidisciplinary, pan-Caribbean perspective, and is the primary association for scholarly and public historians working in the field. Initially formed from a 1969 colloquium under the leadership of Francophone scholar Jacques Adelaide, the ACH held its first annual conference in 1972. Since then, the organization has grown to several hundred members around the globe.

Its principal activity is an annual conference, which is alternately hosted by an English, Spanish, French, or Dutch-speaking Caribbean nation. To encourage intellectual exchange, all attendees attend each conference session and all papers and discussion sessions are simultaneously translated in English, Spanish and French.
