Sessions of possible interest for archivists at American Historical Association Annual Meeting, Jan. 2-5 in DC

I did a roundup yesterday on Twitter, but here collected in one place for your convenience is my attempt to list the sessions that seem to have a bearing on archives or special collections from the program of the annual meeting of the American Historical Association this January (2-5) in Washington, D.C. As I said on Twitter, the most kickass session will be Digital Historiography and the Archives (ahem, yes, that’s the one I’m part of). However, there are many other good sessions in that same timeslot as well as throughout the conference. The hotel rate is a quite reasonable $130, and I know quite a few of you would find a meeting in DC easy to attend, so I hope to see many other archives people there. I’ve attended this meeting once before and found everyone to be quite friendly, so don’t be intimidated by the fancy academics. Let me know if there are any sessions that should be added to this list.
