Balancing Teaching and Scholarship: Why Two-Year Faculty Should Attend the AHA Annual Meeting

By Sarah Shurts

I am always surprised that so many of my colleagues at two-year colleges don’t go to the AHA annual meeting. They all have high regard for the AHA itself and for its publications such as the American Historical Review. Many are even AHA members. But for various reasons they don’t think about attending the meeting or submitting a proposal. Some say it is because of the cost associated with travel, particularly if they have other conferences to attend.
