Annual meeting attendees will have access to an unprecedented range of workshops, panels, and events focused on digital approaches to all aspects of historical scholarship.

Presidential Sessions

Every year the AHA president has the privilege of organizing a series of presidential sessions at the annual meeting. She is, for this purpose, given carte blanche. For the 2015 meeting, I’ve organized two distinct groups of sessions: one addresses a broad topic that connects questions of historical method with current trends of history writing; another concerns the institutions, formal and informal, that sustain our scholarly life or extend it outside the academy. By Jan Goldstein, 2014 AHA President
