AHA Activities

While AHA Today is a brand new resource, created to keep up with the latest happenings in the history profession and at the AHA, there’s an established place on the AHA web site that is just as valuable: the AHA Calendar. The calendar has long been a place for interested parties to go to find out about upcoming meetings and seminars, exhibitions, research opportunities, awards and fellowships, and internet resources. Not only can one find out about interesting events, organizations can post their own activities there as well. AHA Today is here for the most up-to-date information, but don’t forget to check the calendar for a larger variety of opportunities. Here are some entries currently posted on the AHA Calendar:
