Back from a Conference

I had the extreme pleasure this past week to attend and present at the Georgia Association of Historians annual conference, which was held in Jekyll Island, Georgia this year. The experience was fulfilling and helpful for me as a historian and I cannot recommend enough taking time to attend one of these conferences if you are a historian in Georgia. At the conference, historians produced scholarship from a variety of historical fields and illustrated the amazing well of talent the state has in the field of history. Exploring the past seems increasingly relevant in current political and social conditions. Throughout the weekend, conference attendees had the opportunity to discuss urban development, Early Modern England, The American Civil War, and Women's Activism along with a host of other amazing topics. I felt very lucky to have experienced such a great weekend.
