The Ninth Biennial History of Astronomy Workshop took place on July 8-12, 2009 at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana, including a one-day trip to the Adler Planetarium in Chicago.

As the workshop fell during the 2009 International Year of Astronomy, its theme reflected that main goals of the IYA of celebrating the impact that astronomy has and has had on human societies and cultures, as well as to increase the public’s awareness of this rich heritage.
