Poster Session

AHA Session 205
Saturday, January 9, 2010: 2:30 PM-4:30 PM
Elizabeth Ballroom E (Hyatt)
Offered for the fifth time at the 2010 Annual Meeting, this poster session provides a venue for the newest developing historical research. Though relatively new to the humanities, poster sessions have long been utilized at professional meetings in scientific fields. On sessions with several panel participants, audience interaction is limited to brief discussion periods—usually only a few people are able to ask questions and each presenter may not have time to discuss their research fully. The two-hour poster session addresses this common problem, allowing for considered dialogue and engaging interaction. The 2010 Program Committee encourages all meeting attendees to visit the poster sessions on display in the Hyatt’s Elizabeth Ballroom E. The following presenters will be available to discuss their posters between 2:30 and 4:30 on Saturday, January 9:
