The AHA Program is Here! The AHA Program is Here!

The preliminary program of the 2012 meeting of the American Historical Association is now available online.  This year’s meeting will be held January 5-8 in Chicago.

I will be attending the conference this year (commenting on a session on religious networks in the early modern Atlantic world) and probably doing some extensive blogging here at The Way of Improvement Leads Home.  I also hope to attend some sessions on digital history since I am currently sitting on a Messiah College committee devoted to exploring opportunities in the digital humanities.

Here are a few sessions that caught my eye:

Lighting Up the Classroom? Then Talk to the Public! A Discussion

Historians, Historiography, and the Confessional Divide

The Future of Journals in a Digital Age

Teaching History in a Digital Age

An Evangelical Century?: Reappraising the Significance of Religion in the Modern United States

Digital Humanities: A Hands-On Workshop 

Harry Stout’s New England Soul After 25 Years

Edwin Gaustad: Reflections on His Influence
