The Junto Guide to Early America at #AHA2015

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/4d8/41615394/files/2014/12/img_0422.pngHappy New Year from all of us at The Junto! We hope you had a restful and enjoyable holiday break. For historians, the turn of the calendar to 2015 means that many of us are en route to the AHA Annual Meeting in New York City. Having grown up in the area, I’d like to welcome you all to New York, where the bagels and pizza are really just better, and we stand “on line” for coffee, not “in line.”

Many of us and we know many of our readers will be at the conference for a variety of reasons, not the least of which will be the fantastic slate of panels on early America and the Atlantic world. As we did last year, then, here is our guide to panels at this year’s conference, including a few not explicitly about early America that might nonetheless be of interest, especially on digital history and academic publishing. (For a full summary of digital history at the conference, see this list compiled by Anelise Shrout.)

Enjoy the conference, and please say hello if you see any of us around the hotels or at the bloggers and Twitterstorians reception on Friday evening. And please let us know if there are panels we’ve missed in the comments!
