Today’s announcement from the American Historical Association regarding their annual meeting in Chicago in 2012 contained this great bit of news for digital history:

The AHA’s 126th Annual Meeting in Chicago this January 5-8, 2012, will feature nearly two dozen sessions on digital history. This series, titled The Future is Here, includes presentations, discussions, and demonstrations of how digital methods might assist historical research and the humanities in general.
