The 6th Annual PSU History Slam

History Slam is a fast-paced history competition where Portland State University students have only three minutes to present their theses to a distinguished panel of judges for the ultimate prize as PSU History Slam winner! Be a part of the live audience, hear a wide variety of history research topics, and experience the excitement as PSU history majors battle it out for monetary prizes* and eternal glory. Who wants to be a historian?

*Grand prizes will be presented at PSU History Department's year-end ceremony, on June 14th, 2024.

Stay the night, mention History Pub at check-in for 15% off your room.

These events are open to everyone interested in Pacific Northwest history, and beyond! Often co-sponsored by local or state historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers, historians and documentaries expounding on topics from indigenous history to the birth of Portland, early explorers to hop growing, and on and on! It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.

This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
