#AHA16 Day 3 Highlights

Kritika Agarwal | Jan 10, 2016

With two days already under their belts, many attendees were still going strong on day three:

For some, day 3 of #AHA16 began with either a breakfast meeting or a session. The annual networking breakfast of the AHA Committee on Women’s Historians was particularly well-attended:

Morning sessions on podcasts and learning history through avatars proved especially popular among twitterstorians:

There were also morning sessions on rewriting revolutions:

Remapping the Civil War:

And, of course, #AHACareerDiversity:

The opening of the poster sessions in the Exhibit Hall was undoubtedly one of the highlights of the day:

Day 3 also featured a lot of productive discussions on tuning and meeting the needs of K-12 teachers and two-year university faculty:

Some historians took time off from attending sessions to explore Atlanta:

While many graduate students took advantage of the Career Fair during the afternoon:

The afternoon also featured a panel previewing the conference on the Future of the African American Past and the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture:

A session on guidelines for evaluating digital scholarship:

And a session where historians with ideas for digital projects could drop in and get hands-on advice:

The much anticipated business meeting of the AHA took place in the evening:

All in all, a productive day at #AHA16!
