Virtual AHA

Welcome to Virtual AHA, a series of online events that incorporate content drawn from the canceled 2021 annual meeting as well as online teaching forums, career development workshops, History Behind the Headlines presentations, National History Center programming, a Virtual Exhibit Hall, and more. Virtual AHA is not a virtual conference, but a yearlong platform of online opportunities to bring together communities of historians, build professional relationships, discuss scholarship, and engage in professional and career development. 

Virtual AHA is free and AHA membership is not required to participate. Events run through June 2021. For additional information, see:
