OAH's Journal to devote a special issue to Katrina and sponsor conference





The University of South Alabama is sponsoring a conference about Katrina in March 2007 that will feature historians, poets and activists. Nineteen people have been invited to deliver papers.

The papers will be published in a special edition of the Journal of American History in December of 2007.

The Journal published a similar special edition about 9/11.

The OAH did not include any panels on Katrina at its annual convention, which ended today.

The idea for the conference was generated by historians Larry Powell and Clarence Moore. Moore teaches at the University of Southern Alabama in Mobile and volunteered to sponsor the conference.
