NEH at Organization of American Historians Meeting

April 1, 2010 | By Jennifer Serventi

I wanted to alert all historians and friends of historians that there will be a contingent of staff from the National Endowment for the Humanities at the 2010 Organization of American Historians annual meeting here in Washington, DC from April 7-10, 2010.

We'd like to invite you to join us at the NEH Information Session that will be held on Thursday, April 8, from 1:45 pm to 3:15 pm. NEH staff will present an overview of the various grant opportunities for scholars, teachers, and organizations offered by the NEH and we have allotted plenty of time for the question and answer period.

To see NEH staff members in action, you might consider attending one or more of the following panels: Joel Wurl from the Division of Preservation and Access will be chairing a session on "Ethnicity, Migration, and Public History since the 1960s" on Thursday at 10:15 am to 11:45 am. On Saturday from 10:15 am to 11:45 am, Brett Bobley from the Office of Digital Humanities will be chairing the "Digital Tools for Historians" panel. If these sessions somehow conflict with your other OAH activities, NEH also will have an information table at the Hilton. Several of us from the NEH Divisions and Offices will be available to discuss project ideas and grant opportunities. Please stop by to say hello and pick up information and a copy of Humanities magazine.
