The Social Science History Association is meeting at the Park Plaza Hotel in Boston next week.
(1) The Historical Geography Network of the SSHA will be meeting at 12.30
on Friday, in the Thoreau Room at the Park Plaza, and as usual the main
item of business will be possible sessions at the 2012 meeting, November
1st to 4th in Vancouver. Please come along -- and if you cannot be there
please e-mail ideas for sessions to one of us.
(2) Don Lafreniere is willing to continue as one of the co-chairs, but
Humphrey Southall is standing down after two years. Please think about
standing for this role. It is almost entirely done by e-mail, and by
working with the excellent SSHA on-line conference management system, so
while it is helpful to be a reasonably regular attender at SSHA meetings,
it does not matter where on the planet you spend the rest of your year.
(3) We will be organising a group from the Historical Geography network to
go out for a meal together on Thursday evening. There will be a sign-up
list at the conference, but it would be helpful if you could e-mail one of
us in advance saying you want to come.
