PAHA sponsors Annual Conferences, in conjunction with the American Historical Association, which serve as a forum for research in the field of ethnic studies. The 71st Annual Meeting took place in Washington, D.C., in January 2014; the 72nd Annual Meeting in January 2015 in New York. The programs include scholarly presentation of recent research findings and may be found below.
