Well, it looks like the bad weather in Atlanta has kept me from making it to New Orleans for this year’s meeting of the Organization of American Historians. It has been a terrible year of travel to conferences for me. Back in November I had to miss a session at the American Academy of Religion devoted to my book The Bible Cause: A History of the American Bible Society because of a family commitment. Now I have to forgo leading two chat rooms at the OAH.
But life goes on. I will definitely miss working with Beth Marsh, Ed Ayers, and Kevin Schultz.
And despite my absence, the coverage of the conference will go on here at The Way of Improvement Leads Home.
Our correspondents are in NOLA ready to report. And if you are also writing about your experience at the OAH (or would like to write about it here) send me your stuff and I will be happy to post or link.
