Conference of Historical Journals
6508 Hummel Drive
Boise, ID  83709-2055


We’re really meeting!  While the Conference of Historical Journals’ annual meeting didn’t make it into the AHA program, it will happen.  Please join us on Saturday, January 9, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. in Mohsen B on the 3rd floor of the Hyatt.  In addition to a brief business meeting, we plan two topics of conversation: an informal presentation from JSTOR, and a discussion of courses and syllabi to train graduate students in documentary and journal/book editing.

Our booth in the exhibit hall (also at the Hyatt) is #608, across from Pearson/Penguin and next to Northern Illinois University Press and McGill-Queens University Press.  Drop by, say hello, and browse your fellow members’ publications.

Two AHA program sessions may also be of interest to you.  “The Art of the Article: Advice on Publishing in Journals in the Twenty-First Century,” sponsored by the AHA Graduate and Early Career Committee, is Saturday morning from 9 to 11 in San Diego Ballroom, Salon A, at the Marriott; at the same time, in the Del Mar Room at the Marriott, the Polish American Historical Association, is sponsoring a session on “Scholarly Publishing and e-Journals.”

We’ll have copies of this notice available at the booth.  See you there!
