Videos from AHA 2015
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.

About the AHA16 Design
Designer Zoila Torres was born in Peru and moved to Atlanta as a child. Her wide-ranging projects include design for marketing campaigns, museum exhibitions, catalogs, and websites. In her graphic design for the AHA annual meeting , the city's most recognizable landmarks emerge from a vintage color palette of rusty red and gunmetal blue. The logo features landmarks unique to Atlanta, such as Peachtree Street, the city's main street, and one of dozens of streets with "peachtree" in its name. In the foreground is Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Martin Luther King, Jr, was baptized, became a pastor, and where his funeral was held in 1968. Alongside it are the historic shotgun houses, common in the city. Meanwhile, business towers and hotels reach skyward in the background. The contrasting images represent Atlanta's struggles and successes.
