THE EUROPEAN HISTORY SECTION
Founded in 1955, the European History Section of the Southern Historical Association is the oldest European History Association in the United States. It encourages the study of the history of Europe, particularly by historians in the South. It is the only professional association of Europeanists with a comparative, multi-disciplinary approach.
A Non-Profit Tradition
The European History Section is recognized as a non-profit organization under Section 501 (c) (3).All contributions are tax-deductible.
The European History Newsletter
The European History Newsletter is published twice a year, in the fall and in the spring. Issues contain reports of annual meetings, descriptions of European history sessions at annual meetings, committee news, announcements, special interest columns, and news of historical interest.
The Annual Meeting
The European History Section convenes at the annual meeting of the Southern Historical Association, which is normally held in early November. There is ordinarily a European history session in each conference time slot. Other sessions devoted to the fields of British, American, Latin American, and public history bring together the most recent scholarship by historians in the South.
At the annual meeting, the European History Section hosts a luncheon during which it conducts its annual Business Meeting followed by a speaker.
Recent locations for the annual meeting have included Birmingham, AL; Orlando, FL; New Orleans, LA; Louisville, KY; Atlanta, GA; Fort Worth, TX; and Baltimore, MD.
The EHS logo was designed by Waltraud Troester. It was under Robin Rudoff's tenure as editor of the EHS Newsletter, that the logo was adopted.
