AHA Roundup

Are you as hungry as I am for news from the AHA?
  • For daily dispatches and highlights from the meeting, look no further than the AHA website. For additional coverage, go to the History News Network website. (Scroll down to "Day 2" to read coverage of the 2012 election that panel we mentioned on Saturday, featuring legal historians Laura Kalman (University of California, Santa Barbara) and Mary Frances Berry (University of Pennsylvania), among others.) Clair Potter (the New School) is also posting reflections on her blog, Tenured Radical.
  • Writing for Inside Higher Ed, Colleen Flaherty sums up a conversation among history department chairs about the challenges they currently face ("Historic Relevance").
