As always, I will not include Latin American panels (with sometimes an exception or two) since the Conference on Latin American History meets at the AHA and those panels are a) numerous and b) easy to find.
Also, this will be my last post until the new year. Have fun at the AHA, those of you who are going – these panels are making me wish I was going – not always true for the AHA!
