Florida Conference of Historians

Florida Conference of Historian 
Special Interest Section on Media, Arts, and Culture

The Florida Conference of Historians began in 1962 as the Florida College Teachers of History (FCTH). Conceived as professional forum for historians in Florida and elsewhere, the FCTH founders included Sister Mary Rice of Barry University, Maurice Vance and Tom Campbell of Florida State University. They conceived of an organization covering all historical fields that would give historians an opportunity to share their scholarship and develop a sense of collegiality among teaching professionals within the state and region. In 1992, the organization changed its name to the Florida Conference of Historians to encourage wider participation. Since its first conference in 1963, thirty different institutions have hosted the organization's annual meeting. Membership in the Florida Conference of Historians is open to persons interested in any historical field or interest.  The FCH welcomes historical analysis from undergraduates, graduates, professors and non-historians at it yearly meeting. The FCH continues to promote history with its yearly meeting and publishes a referred journal, The Selected Annual Proceedings of the Florida Conference of Historians that highlights superior research from scholars at every level of academic training. 

Media, Arts and Culture Special Interest Section (SIS)
In 2010 the FCH board voted to create special interest sections within the broader FCH to stimulate participation in specific fields. In creating these sections, the board’s goal was to highlight the FCH as venue for scholars within the region and around the world for subject both intersecting with and apart from a regional focus.  The Media, Arts, and Culture SIS welcomes professionals, graduate students, undergraduates, and independent scholars examining graphic narratives in all forms.
