Undergraduate Poster Session

Poster submissions for the 2021 annual meeting will be accepted later this summer.

The Undergraduate Poster Session has become a mainstay at the AHA's annual meeting as an opportunity for undergraduates to share their research with peers and established scholars. Poster presentations offer a great opportunity for history students to learn how to present evidence and narrative in a concise, visual format. Posters encourage one-on-one conversation between presenters and their audience and are an excellent opportunity to start building a professional network. Most importantly, they present an opportunity to have fun and participate in the largest annual gathering of historians in the United States.

The online proposal system for submitting posters is closed but will be open from the summer until October 15, 2020. Posters may be submitted by an individual or a group. See the poster resources on our website for details about presenting a poster at the annual meeting. Please note, an undergraduate student may participate in both the poster session and lightning round provided that the research submitted to each session is unique.

Everyone participating in the annual meeting is required to register. Registration opens in mid-September. AHA members may register their undergraduate students at for only $15. Presenters at the undergraduate poster session are not required to be AHA members.

The 2020 Undergraduate Poster Session will be held on Sunday, January 5, 2020 at 3:30 p.m. in the Hilton's Third Floor Promenade.
