Well, the book manuscript is finally done, printed (despite a broken department printer — found one in another department) and sent off to the publisher. Now I’m gearing up for the annual meeting of the American Historical Association in Boston, which starts tomorrow. I don’t often attend this meeting — it’s an inconvenient time of year, I prefer smaller conferences, etc. — but the chance to meet other digital history folks (aka twitterstorians) had me enthusiastic. One of them is even more enthusiastic — see this post at the blog Notes from the Field — and I’m looking forward to meeting her and others in person.
I’m also one of the few executive board members of the Disability History Association who can attend the meeting. So, I’ll be there representing. If you’re interested in this area, please do come to the Task Force on Disability and open forum and tribute to the late, great Paul Longmore on Friday afternoon.
As always, I’ll will be knitting during sessions (and in between). Please don’t take offense — it’s better than texting!
If you can’t make the meeting, you can follow some of it on Twitter using #AHA2011.
P.S. Tenured Radical has a guide to recommended sessions here. Also see her ongoing series on job interviews.
Congrats on your book. I hope you’ll have a chance to celebrate at the AHA, though it’s not an automatically festive place. 🙂
