Meetings & Events


At a time when we so easily communicate in front of the screens of our computers, tablets, and telephones, we can forget the value of the impression made in a face-to-face meeting. The verbal sharing of ideas and the subtleties of body language can lead to a far more satisfying and effective exchange. This is why the OAH has created the Sit. Talk. Share. events. These events focus on ways to encourage and nurture face-to-face interaction; to share ideas and opinions, and to connect and discuss career opportunities. We encourage everyone to participate and help grow our community of historians by sitting, talking, and sharing.


Are you interested in publishing your work? The Hub offers you the opportunity to connect with a select group of publishers in a private, focused setting to chat about the future of your manuscript.
