Photos and Videos from the 129th Annual Meeting

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.

Our photographer captured moments from the awards ceremony, receptions, selected sessions, and many casual moments in the meeting hotels, so check out our Facebook album. Additionally, 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 picked interesting panels that might be suitable for use in a classroom.Visit our YouTube channel to watch or listen to these sessions, including pieces filmed for C-SPAN and History News Network (HNN).
