The American Historical Association will convene the world’s largest annual gathering of historians in New York City on January 3–6, 2025, to explore all things historical—many with direct relevance to contemporary public policy and culture. The past year has highlighted the American public’s deep interest in history and how it can inform public conversations. Journalists and other media professionals will find ample source material among the hundreds of hundreds of sessions, in the exhibit hall, or even overheard in the hallways. We welcome your attendance and participation in the world’s largest annual gathering of professional historians.
