ASCH Winter Meeting Drawing Near

by Shaun Horton

The annual winter meeting of the American Society of Church History is one month away. I will be live blogging as many panels and events as humanly possible on our Facebook page. You can add to the blog from your Twitter account by adding the hash tag #ASCH13 to your tweet, or by visiting the blog and adding a comment. My own coverage will likely skew towards American history because that’s the area with which I am most familiar, so commentary on other areas will be especially welcome.

In the meantime, here are some important dates to remember as the conference draws near:


December 12 – Last day to reserve a suite at the Embassy Suites New Orleans-Convention Center.

December 14 – Last day to register for the conference online or by mail.

December 14 – Also the deadline for panel participants to apply for graduate student awards or independent scholar awards.

January 3 – First panel sessions begin at 1pm. (Download the latest program draft here.)
