AHA members are invited to submit proposals for the AHA’s 127th annual meeting, which will be held January 3–6, 2013, in New Orleans. The deadline for submissions is February 15, 2012. Not a member? Join the AHA and be part of this scholarly gathering, which attendees have praised as being inspiring, a place to connect with colleagues, thought-provoking, and fun.
The 2013 meeting theme is “Lives, Places, Stories,” and the Program Committee encourages panels on lived experiences, the role of geography in history, and how narratives help people make sense of their lives. However, the committee will also seriously consider proposals that do not fall under the scope of the theme, since the annual meeting is meant to be “a showplace for the very best in historical practice,” and therefore encompasses all topics, time periods, and places.
