The conference schedule has been posted for the 129th Annual Meeting of the American Historical Association (AHA), which takes place January 2-5, 2015 in New York City (register now!). The AHA has a number of wonderful panels on the history of sexuality, which we have listed for our readers below.

Are you attending any of these panels? If so, we want to hear from you. Notches has a regular “Dispatches” feature where we publish our readers’ critical accounts of conferences, symposia, and workshops that they attend. Through this feature, we hope to keep you appraised of current events, ongoing debates, advances in scholarship, and general discussions on the history of sexuality. Interested in writing a dispatch on the AHA for us? Send an email to NotchesBlog@gmail.com
