The 121st annual meeting of the American Historical Association will be held January 4–7, 2007, in Atlanta at the Hilton Atlanta, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Hyatt Regency Atlanta, and the Westin Peachtree Plaza Atlanta hotels. Download the Hotel reservation and meeting preregistration forms; both forms will also be included in the annual meeting Program (which will be mailed to members in October), and will be posted on the Association's web site.

Many of the profession's most distinguished members will be present to deliver papers at the 223 “official” sessions. More than 1,000 scholars, including 88 from 27 foreign countries, are expected to participate in the various sessions at the three and one-half day meeting. In addition, more than four dozen specialized societies will be meeting in conjunction with the AHA.

On the evening of Friday, January 5, Linda K. Kerber of the University of Iowa will deliver the presidential address. President-elect Barbara Weinstein of the University of Maryland, College Park will announce the Association's book awards, Awards for Scholarly Distinction, the Troyer Steele Anderson Prize, the Eugene Asher Distinguished Teaching Award, the Beveridge Family Teaching Prize, the John E. O'Connor Film Award, the Nancy Lyman Roelker Mentorship Award, and the 2006 Honorary Foreign Member.
