The Way of Improvement Leads Home is looking for writers/correspondents to report from this year's American Historical Association Meeting in New Orleans.
I am looking for readers 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!
What am I looking for out of these reports? Frankly, anything. Let the
spirits move you. I would love to get general observations, reports on
sessions you attend, job market updates, or any other kind of stuff you might have the
time or inclination to write about.
Feel free to be as creative and journalistic as you want. If at all
possible I would like to get some stuff as the conference is going on,
but general summaries would also work. Feel free to write as few or
as many as you would like. I will try to get stuff posted
here in real time (or thereabouts).
As for your identity, we can go one of two ways. You can identify
yourself and we can introduce you with a little bio about you and your
work. Or you can remain anonymous and write under a pseudonym.
The choice is up to you.
If interested, shoot me an e-mail at jfea(at)messiah(dot)edu
