I am putting together a panel for the AHA annual conference in Chicago in January 2003 on the opportunities and pitfalls of reference publishing for the historian. I am an editor and packager of history reference books and I will be on the panel. I also have a representative a reference publisher on the panel. I am looking for academic historian who have either 1) edited/authored history reference books; or 2) can speak to the issue of reference publishing, hiring, and tenure (preferably someone who serves or has recently served on hiring/tenure committees for his/her department). I would like the latter person to discuss the value of reference editing/authoring as it relates to CV enhancement, hiring chances, and tenure opportunities.
Please contact me as soon as possible at the email or phone listed as the deadline for filing panel papers is 2/15/02. (You don't have to have your comments for the conference ready as I will be filling out the forms and filing the proposal, but I would like commitment to participate by the 2/15/02 deadline.) Note: all panelists must be members of the AHA.
