The conference fete, our annual dinner and dance, will be held on Thursday evening, May 30. An optional field trip is scheduled for Friday, May 31. More details about the field trip will be posted to the ACH website as they become available. Please make your travel plans accordingly.

The ACH also welcomes this opportunity to celebrate the University of Curaçao’s 40th Anniversary and to contribute to the commemoration of 50 years after Curacao’s ‘30 mei 1969’ or ‘Trinta di Mei’, a watershed in Dutch Antilles history. The ACH will be hosting our 51st Annual Conference with the overall conference theme, “Resistance: A View from the Margins”. We invite paper and panel proposals on aspects of the above theme, and especially the sub-themes of cultural exchanges and the politics of commemoration. While papers on the overall theme are encouraged, applicants are welcome to submit proposals on other subjects.
