A panel at the Organization of American Historians Annual Meeting, April 10, 2016 in Providence, RI

Sunday at OAH 2016

[Check out our recaps from Thursday, Friday, and Saturday]

The 2016 Organization of American Historians Annual Meeting drew to a close on Sunday with a number of exciting panels on topics including women’s history, careers, abolition, reform, and urban history.

As we conclude coverage of the OAH 2016 meeting and bid farewell to Providence, new OAH President Nancy F. Cott of Harvard University offers this preview of the 2017 meeting: “The OAH conference in New Orleans, April 6-9 2017, will offer an exciting panoply of sessions not only highlighting the conference theme of ‘circulation’ but also also featuring  sessions and activities that explore the variegated history of New Orleans and sessions marking the centenary of U.S. entry into World War I. Many local activities, including a tour to the Whitney Plantation and a special visit to the World War II museum, will be available. And the dates of the conference coincide with the French Quarter Festival, a four-day local music showcase outdoors in the streets of the French Quarter and the largest annual free music event in the United States.”
