The Toynbee Prize Foundation at the 2016 American Historical Association Annual Meeting
If you are making your way to Atlanta early this new year, consider joining the Toynbee Prize Foundation for our traditional bi-annual AHA session!
At this year's American Historical Association Annual Meeting (January 7-10 in Atlanta, Georgia), on Friday, January 8th, the Toynbee Prize Foundation will host its traditional bi-annual AHA Annual Meeting Session, with this year's event being titled "The Origins of Global History: A Reappraisal." That session will take place in International Ballroom 4 on the International Level of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis (265 Peachtree Center Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30303) from 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM.
There, building on the discussions launched at the October 2015 conference "The Transformation of Global History, 1963-1975," held at Princeton University and co-sponsored by the Foundation, we look forward to contributions from Benjamin Breen (Columbia University), Christopher H. Heaney (University of Texas at Austin), Felipe Fernández-Armesto (University of Notre Dame), and Benjamin Sacks (Princeton University) on the changes in the field and very concept of global history since the 1960s.
For those of you looking to coördinate these two events with the rest of your AHA Annual Meeting schedule, please consult the Annual Meeting's online program, available online here. There, you will find information both about other sessions at the conference as well as general logistical information to help you plan your trip to Atlanta.
