AHA 2015 in the News

The 129th annual meeting triggered a flurry of articles about AHA sessions, affiliate meetings, and the AHA business meeting. AHA Today hosted a series of guest blog posts from annual meeting attendees, and AHA staff reflected on the meeting in the February and March issues of Perspectives.

Poster Presenters

Poster sessions provide a unique way for historians to present their work in an engaging and visual format. We've compiled a range of sources on the benefits of presenting a poster, howe the format works, and how to craft an effective poster.

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.
