If you live in the New York City area this January, and are an historian, you’re in luck: the AHA is in our back yard this time around. Of course, we’ve also been thrown a curve ball in that New Year’s Day is a Thursday, so the conference goes all the way through Monday (ick…).  Now, from a medievalist’s perspective the AHA tends to be pretty grim. There are very, very few premodern sessions, and the ones that do exist aren’t always in one’s area of interest. That being said, here are the sessions that caught my eye in the program, complete with hyperlink to more detailed information. Maybe I’ll see you at some of them!
