Poster Session # 1

AHA Session 167
Saturday, January 9, 2016: 9:00 AM-11:30 AM
Galleria Exhibit Hall (Hilton Atlanta, Exhibit Level)

This poster session provides a venue for the newest developing historical research. 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 poster session addresses this common problem, allowing for considered dialogue and engaging interaction.

The 2016 Program Committee encourages all meeting attendees to visit the posters on display. The following presenters will be available to discuss their posters between 9:00 and 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 9:
