AHA Conference: Social Catch-Ups

Hi pals! We’re right in the middle of November (um, how?) which means that the 39th AHA Conference is only a few weeks away! After a Covid-cancellation last year, and a Covid-delay this year, we are itching to hang out with our history community and listen to some ace papers. Of course, check out the conference website for the schedule and program!

While border closures and Covid uncertainties have meant that the conference is running virtually, easing restrictions in each city mean that we’re able to catch-up in person in each capital city … and we’re so excited to be able to see each other again! With the help of some generous people in our HDR/ECR community we’ve managed to organise social events in each city. Check out the details below … and also, keep an eye on the Conference Whova app, as all the details are listed there (and you can RSVP, too!).
