Jim asked us to collect other sites and places on the web that are important for our professional community. Here’s my initial list.

Professional organizations:

The American Historical Association, our big professional organization (with their recently revamped–and much-improved–website).

American Society for Ethnohistory, an interdisciplinary organization committed to creating “a more inclusive picture of native groups in the Americas.”

The McNeil Center for Early American Studies, located in Philadelphia. The Center hosts a variety of events, sponsors conferences (I’ll present at one in March), edits a book series, and issues a journal.

The Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture is based at William & Mary. It hosts conferences and symposiums, issues the premier journal in colonial American history, and partners with UNC Press to publish monographs.

More casual and/or closer to home:

My people in the Department of History and American Studies at UMW.

The website of Jeff McClurken, UMW History and American Studies department chair. Jeff is incredibly active in the digital humanities.

The Junto, a group that can explain itself: “The Junto is a group blog made up of junior early Americanists—graduate students and junior faculty—dedicated to providing content of general interest to other early Americanists and those interested in early American history, as well as a forum for discussion of relevant historical and academic topics.”

Historiann, which I include  in part because of the blog, in part because I love Ann Little’s scholarship.

The website of Jana Remy, a graduate school colleague and historian who teaches Digital Humanities at Chapman University.
