Code of Conduct

To ensure that all participants benefit from the event, the OAH seeks to provide a harassment-free, respectful, welcoming, and inclusive environment for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, physical appearance, ethnicity, religion, or other group identity. The OAH has no tolerance for sexual harassment or any other form of harassment at its events. 

The OAH is not an adjudicating body. However, anyone who feels threatened at one of OAH’s events should report the behavior to the hotel or venue security. The OAH Executive Director should also be notified of such incidents and that a security report has been made to the hotel or the venue.

Theme Visualizer

Map your conference experience using the Theme Visualizer. We invite attendees to explore proposals and papers based on common topics. By selecting a topic in the Theme Visualizer, attendees are able to view sessions that share a common focus, which may not be immediately apparent. Select a theme such as "civil rights" and see related sessions, paper abstracts, and corresponding information such as speaker, date, and time. The goal is to make explicit latent connections across the conference so that participants can follow a different and unexpected path through the conference.
The Theme Visualizer will be available to explore January 2019.
