The American Historical Association 2015 Annual Meeting opens in New York City today. Thousands of professors, instructors, independent researchers, research librarians, and graduate students in history will be attending the largest historical conference in North America over the next several days.
This massive conference hosts hundreds of sessions in which historians will be presenting or discussing new research, historiographical reflections, methodological approaches, pedagogical techniques, curricular reforms, public history projects, and digital humanities work. Every field of historical research from antiquity to the contemporary world will be represented at the conference.
