Announcing OAH Crossroads - an online community for U.S. historians
The OAH Annual Meeting Crossroads, in partnership with H-net, is an online forum where U.S. historians can collaborate to form panels for upcoming Annual Meetings, connect ahead of the conference to find room or travel mates, or converse about the profession.
As opposed to a traditional H-net network, Crossroads posts OAH related conversations from other H-net area specific networks on one page. So, if you are searching for collaborators in H-AfroAm then, by using certain keywords, it will show up in OAH Crossroads making it easier for potential Annual Meeting participants to find.
