As a Virginia representative of the 2002 Southern Historical Association
membership committee, I invite you to join the Southern Historical
Association if you have not already done so. Founded in 1934, the
organization ranks among the most important organizations today promoting
scholarship on vital aspects of American history, including regionalism,
sectionalism, race, war and society, religion, and economy.
The SHA's acclaimed quarterly, the Journal of Southern History, publishes
articles on a wide range of topics, reviews book, and provides information
on activities within the profession, including conference announcements and
award and research opportunities.
Scholars from around the world attend the SHA annual meeting, normally held
during the first or second week of November. Sessions devoted to the
fields of American, European, Latin American, and public history bring
together the most recent scholarship by historians in the South. Recent
meetings have been held in Atlanta, Birmingham, Fort Worth, Louisville, and
Please note that the dues are among the lowest for any professional
organization (student dues are only $8.00). The annual meeting pre-
registration fee of $10.00 is not only a bargain, but reflects the
organization's emphasis on promoting participation and exchange.
Membership provides an excellent opportunity for archivists, librarians,
curators, historians, history enthusiasts, and students to affiliate with a
first-rate, scholarly enterprise.
I hope you will consider becoming of a member of SHA. For more information
