I am hoping to organize a panel that explores various aspects of doing history as a hobby from the 19th century until today. I am particularly, but not exclusively, interested in papers that trace the development of various aspects of history as a hobby over time and analyze its relationship to professional history. I am also interested in papers that reflect on the practice of history as a hobby today. My own work deals with the development of genealogy as a hobby.
If you are interested, please email me by February 12. A detailed panel proposal will need to be turned in by February 15.
