Experimental Poster Session

AHA Session 225
Saturday, January 8, 2011: 2:00 PM-5:00 PM
Ballroom C (Hynes Convention Center)
Offered for the sixth time at the 2011 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 three-hour poster session addresses this common problem, allowing for considered dialogue and engaging interaction. The 2011 Program Committee encourages all meeting attendees to visit the poster sessions on display. The following presenters will be available to discuss their posters between 2:00 and 5:00 on Saturday, January 8:
Sacred Ground of the Cold War: The International Spy Museum
