I just started perusing the schedule for next week’s OAH (my first!) and saw that there is going to be a “State of the Field: Intellectual History” with panelists Charles Capper, Nicole Eustace, Jeffrey Sklansky, Joan Rubin, and James Kloppenberg. It is scheduled for the Friday 10:15-11:45am time slot. I have an appointment at 10:30 that day, so I’m not sure if I’ll make it to that panel, but I was thinking it would be good for whoever is there to have an informal USIH lunch afterwards. Just keep it in mind.
Also, use the comments for any OAH-newbie advice. How is it like other conferences? How is it not?
