The AHA is pleased to welcome our new marketing and public relations manager, Jane Fiegen Green. Jane comes to the AHA from the marketing department of the National Business Institute, a leading provider of continuing legal education programs, where she used academic research skills to analyze trends in the practice of law and understand the curricular needs of attorneys. Jane helped NBI expand its base of subscribers by identifying key topics of concern in personal injury, insurance coverage, and civil litigation.

Jane received her BA from Drake University and her PhD in American history from Washington University in St. Louis. Her dissertation shows how capitalism changed the meaning of adulthood in early 19th-century New England. Her work has been published by History of Education Quarterly and Wayne State University Press.

During her academic training, Jane found that historical thinking requires the thinker to simultaneously explore broad changes while staying true to each individual story. She follows this maxim whether she is doing historical research on 19th-century mill workers, contemporary market research on 21st-century insurance defense attorneys, or the broad community we call historians.
