Conferences in the Upcoming Fortnight

In the next two weeks, I plan to attend three different history conferences in Massachusetts.

If I can make the technology work, I might try some version of live-blogging from those venues. But I’ll be lucky if I manage to keep my name tag the right way up.

Looking ahead, the New England Historical Association has issued a call for papers on any historical topic for its meeting at Endicott College in Beverly on 25 Oct 2008. The deadline is 15 June.

As a result, I might well post fewer original words here for a while, and more links to other places.

If you’re at any of those events, please say hello. I’ll be the one wearing the name tag that reads, “NHOf W,I ¡IH”.
