The World History Association, along with our gracious local host, the University of Costa Rica, are pleased to announce the 2014 WHA Costa Rica Conference. The dual themes of the conference will be The Environment in World History and Latin America In World History.

John R. McNeill will present this year’s Keynote Address, “How Hungry Mosquitoes Liberated the Americas, 1776-1898.”

The conference will offer a wonderful opportunity to commune with an international community of world history scholars, teachers, and students. The conference venue and official conference hotel, the Costa Rica Marriott Hotel San Jose, will provide a wonderful backdrop to reconnect with colleagues from around the globe, an excellent setting for the collegiality that is a well-known feature of our annual conference. Conference registration fee includes coffee breaks and two evening receptions. We welcome former attendees, as well as new, to join us for what will be a memorable and rewarding experience.

Pre and Post-Conference tours are being provided by Travel Excellence. We recommend you arrive early and stay after the conference to take advantage of all the country has to offer. Information on the tours can be found below.
