World History Association Adds Affiliates

WHA, October 1991

The WHA announces that its activities were recently expanded by the establishment of new regional affiliates in California, Georgia, Ohio, Texas, and the Rocky Mountain area.

Through its Rocky Mountain regional affiliate, the WHA earlier this year presented a highly successful conference at the U.S. Air Force Academy on the topic "Our Changing World in Historical Perspective."

The WHA, founded in 1982 to advance teaching and research in history, publishes the World History Journal and the Bulletin. Its membership nationwide currently exceeds 1,000. The Journal recently was awarded First Place in the 1990 Council of Editors of Learned Journals competition in the category of Best New Journal. Judges in the competition singled out the World History Journal for its timeliness and broad, "thoughtful analysis".

In commemoration of the 1492 quincentennial, the WHA will sponsor a conference, "1492 in Global Perspective," at Drexel University on June 25-29, 1992.

Additional information on the WHA and its activities may be obtained by writing to Professor Richard Rosen, Executive Director, WHA, Department of History and Politics, Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA 19104.
