H-Pennsylvania is sponsoring a rountable on Pennsylvania history and social media at the 2015 annual meeting of the Pennsylvania Historical Assocation to be held October 8-10 in Annville, Pennsylvania. We are looking for panelists who are using social media in innovative and effective ways to teach, explore or popularize any aspect of Mid Atlantic history. If you are interested or have suggestions, please respond to this discussion or email me directly at email@example.com.
H-Pennsylvania is a network for scholars, teachers, archivists, librarians, and others interested in the history and culture of Pennsylvania.
As long time H-Pennsylvania list members can plainly see, we've undergone some changes, and there are more to come! But let's keep the conversation going and the information flowing. We still want all the CFP's, announcements, queries, and all other things Pennsylvanian that we loved on H-Pennsylvania.

The Pennsylvania Hospital, the nation’s first chartered hospital, was founded by Dr. Thomas Bond and Benjamin Franklin, in 1751. It was the first institution in colonial America organized exclusively for the treatment and care of the sick poor and mentally ill. The Pennsylvania Hospital became a primary force in shaping the attitude of colonial Americans toward persons with emotional and psychological disorders, as well as advancing the practice of clinical medicine through Dr. Bond’s lectures to medical students at the hospital.
