AHA 2013: The Power of Cartography: Remapping the Black Death in the Age of Genomics and GIS

This coming year’s American Historical Association meeting will be held in New Orleans, Jan 2 – Jan 6, 2013. The schedule went online within about the last day. I’ll be at the AHA meeting for the first time this year at this session. The links below are to the session and individual speaker abstracts. I think it will be a great session and hopefully something more permanent will come of it.
