Videos from Last Year

The AHA's Annual Meeting is a great place to hear about the latest in historical scholarship and practice. Our sessions focus on many different topics, from the histories of places and periods to the uses of history itself in a wide variety of venues. Nearly 300 sessions were held at the 2015 meeting in New York. Several of these sessions were recorded, and we have posted them online for your reference. These videos should be helpful for future session organizers or those who were unable to attend the meeting. We also recorded panels that might be suitable for use in a classroom.
