New in 2020-2021: join us virtually, all year long!

In 2020, the American Historical Association is hosting Virtual AHA, a suite of video and online content that will run through June 2021. Virtual AHA will incorporate presentation and social components from the canceled annual meeting, a series of online teaching forums and career development workshops, additional video content streams such as History Behind the Headlines, and a virtual exhibit hall. Attendance at Virtual AHA will be high; over 5,000 unique audience members attended AHA webinars in June and July 2020, before the official start date of Virtual AHA.

Virtual AHA is hosted on an online website platform, as well as a mobile app platform. The web-based programming will bring together our communities of historians to share research and professional development, to explore career paths, to discover teaching resources, and to network with other scholars from across the world.

Virtual AHA attendees and all interested web users will be able to access content from the site including Virtual Exhibit Hall booths, most pre-recorded and live sessions, and more. The Virtual AHA site launched on October 1, 2020 and will be live through June 30, 2021. Sign up now to get the most out of your investment!
