Annual Meeting Exhibits

Join us in Seattle, WA, January 7 – 10, 2021!

Since 1884, the American Historical Association annual meeting has been the premier gathering for historians to come together to share research and professional development, and to network with other scholars from across the world. Young historians attend to learn about the profession and their career paths. The Exhibit Hall is a major attraction for attendees seeking publishers for their work; procuring books for course adoption; finding new teaching tools; investigating the latest monographs, edited volumes, and journals; and exploring digital solutions.

The meeting will be held at the Washington State Convention Center.
