Guidelines for Member News

AHA members are encouraged to submit news about their careers, including prizes, promotions, honors, tenure, and new jobs. The purpose of this column, which is published in Perspectives on History as space permits, is to recognize and honor the accomplishments of AHA members. Entries will be published in alphabetical order.

All submissions accepted for publication will become the property of the American Historical Association and will be subject to the copyright policies of the AHA (which include the AHA’s right to publish the entry in print as well as any other medium).

Submissions must be no more than 150 words. All submissions must have complete contact information for the author(s).

When copyediting articles, Perspectives on History editors use the 16th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style and the 11th edition of Merriam-Websterrsquo;s Collegiate Dictionary. In general, the editors attempt to make an author’s prose as effective as possible, both in the author’s interest and that of Perspectives on History. The editors seek to remove redundancies and errors—if any—in grammar, punctuation, and spelling.

If you have an announcement that you would like to publish, please send it to, with the subject line, “Member News.”
