The American Historical Association annual conference is coming to Denver, January 5-8, and thousands of historians from across the country and around the world will be here. This presents great opportunities for students to attend exciting sessions; meet other historians, possibly including some of your favorite ones; learn skills of various kinds, including digital skills; and cruise the book displays, which will include all of the latest history books, many journals, and other media. Attendees can often purchase books and other materials at a discount, as well.
One of several ways for students to participate is to take a job there. Here is the description from the AHA:
The AHA needs several dozen workers to help with various tasks. Responsibilities will include working at the Job Center, making sure that meeting rooms have necessary equipment, and lots of other behind-the-scenes jobs that must be performed effectively if the meeting as a whole is to run smoothly. We seek workers who will be available for at least eight hours during the course of the meeting.
Each worker will be paid $15.00 per hour, and each will receive free meeting registration. (The preregistration fee for a graduate student is ordinarily $78 for student members and $103 for student nonmembers). Workers will be able to attend sessions that interest them, and also visit the exhibit hall, at times when they are not working. (See the meeting program to learn more about what will be going on.)
