Georgia Southern has been elected to serve as the home institution to the Georgia Association of Historians (GAH), following a vote by the organization’s board.
Lisa L. Denmark, Ph.D., associate professor of history, is the GAH Executive Secretary-Treasurer.
The GAH serves as a statewide professional organization for the study of history. The group encourages and promotes historical research, preservation, record keeping, publication and high standards in the teaching of history.
Members of the society pursue a variety of historical interests, including United States history, public history, European history, Middle Eastern history and Latin American history, among others. Annual meetings, held since 1974, are the primary venue of face-to-face communication between members.
The GAH publishes the Journal of the Georgia Association of Historians, a peer-reviewed publication open to all historians in the state as well as all participants at the association’s annual conference.
