Organization of Educational Historians

The Organization of Educational Historians (OEH) is an academic society of scholars from throughout the nation who produce research on educational history. OEH, formerly known as the Midwest History of Education Society, meets each fall for its annual conference, which is typically held in Chicago. We present papers, discuss recent changes in scholarship on educational history, consider ways to promote the teaching of educational history at our universities, and otherwise make plans for the future of OEH.
