OAH Receives Mellon Grant for 2018 Annual Meeting

The Organization of American Historians recently received a two-year, $150,000 grant from the Andrew Mellon Foundation to increase the reach of the 2018 OAH Annual Meeting.

The OAH Amplified Initiative will broaden the meeting's audience and continue conversations beyond the walls of the in-person meeting. The Mellon grant will allow the work presented at the 2018 Annual Meeting to become available to a broader audience, allowing instructors to engage with new ideas in their classrooms and researchers to access and cite the scholarship presented. Digital audio recordings of the sessions will provide the foundation for this amplified meeting initiative.

The OAH is excited to provide this opportunity to amplify the work of historians both inside the historical community and beyond it.
