Why Present a Poster?
Why might you consider preparing a poster presentation rather than a paper for a session? There are many reasons, among them the opportunity to discuss your work with fellow historians and get immediate feedback in a laid-back setting.
Poster Contest Winner 2015: Christine Axen
Christine Axen was the winner from the poster contest at the 2015 annual meeting in New York. Axen is in the History Department at Boston University completing a dissertation on the religious landscape of medieval southern France, entitled "Mapping the Bishop of Avignon: Sources of Episcopal Power in the Thirteenth Century." She presented her dissertation research in the form of a poster for AHA 2015, and writes about the experience of preparing her poster and presenting it on AHA Today.
Poster Winner 2014: Kelly Spring
The winner of our first annual meeting poster contest was Kelly Spring, a PhD candidate at the University of Manchester. Spring's poster was entitled "Rationed Food: Experience and Memory." We interviewed afterward about the experience of presenting her research in this particular format.
