Session of the Week: Historians and the Obama Narrative

annual meeting sessionIn an effort to highlight the diverse range of scholarship at the upcoming 126th annual meeting, we’re highlighting different sessions here on the blog each week. Today we point to session 101-A: Historians and the Obama Narrative, which will be chaired by AHA Executive Director James Grossman.

Each of the panelists for this session have researched and produced scholarly works on President Obama. Dianne Pinderhughes’ presidential address for APSA, “The Challenge of Democracy: Explorations in American Racial Politics,” was delivered the same night Obama spoke at the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver.
