Anyone Going to the AHA? A Call for Correspondents

The annual meeting of the American Historical Association will be held January 7-10 in San Diego. I will not be going this year, but I want to cover the conference on the blog.

I am looking for readers of "The Way of Improvement Leads Home" who are going to the conference and might be interested in serving as "correspondents." I can't pay anything, but I can promise the fame associated with your words and by-line appearing on this blog!

If you are interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail at jfea(at)messiah(dot)edu or else just send me a post about the conference if the spirit moves you to write one. (If you want to remain anonymous just let me know).

I am particularly interested in posts related to the themes of this blog--early American history, American religious history, religion and politics, the teaching of history, and the historical profession (including war stories from the job market).

Thanks for considering this.

John

I'll be at the ASCH. I thought about registering for the AHA too, but last time I registered for both (in Chicago) I barely had time for the AHA anyway. There are some interesting AHA sessions, though.

Russ: If you are so moved, feel free to send something along about whatever sessions you attend.
