2017 OAH Annual Meeting, New Orleans

Circulation, the theme of the 2017 OAH Annual Meeting, is everywhere evident in the historical record. Ideas, goods, information, laborers, water, currency, disease, highways, and much more, circulate. Circulation suggests movement, but also connection between points and places. It suggests movement that gives definition. From the scale of the human body to the scale of the global, from the material to the ideological, circulation characterizes many of the subjects historians study, whether migrations, pilgrimages, economies, networks, ideas, culture, conflicts, plagues or demography. Circulations link, but also separate; they populate and depopulate; and they transport and return.

The OAH Annual Meeting brings together the nation's largest gathering of American Historians for four days of education, networking, special events, and access to publishers and other resources. Explore the latest trends, perspectives, and scholarship; connect with more than 2,000 of your closest peers; learn from over 150 sessions, workshops, and discussions; and recharge in this historic and vibrant city.

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
