Regional conferences are held annually and national conferences are held biannually.
This year's Phi Alpha Theta Tennessee Regional Conference was held at Austin Peay State University on February 28, 2015. Brad Miller won the graduate paper prize for his paper "Built for the Living: African American Funeral Homes across Tennessee, 1880's-1960's."
These conferences are good places to meet other history students and exchange ideas. Students who are interested in presenting papers at these conferences are encouraged to contact the Faculty advisor.
