2018 Winter Meeting of the ASCH

ASCH Members: Register for the 2018 Conference Here

The American Society of Church History is pleased to announce the details of its 2018 Winter Meeting.

The 2018 ASCH Annual Meeting will take place from January 4-7, 2018 at the Dupont Circle Hotel in Washington, D.C. All of the ASCH conference sessions, along with the Presidential Reception, the Prize Awards Luncheon, the annual Business Meeting, will be held in the hotel. The only exceptions are the three AHA/ASCH joint panels, which will take place a short walk up Connecticut Avenue in a nearby AHA conference hotel.

For the first time in a long time, we will have our own dedicated book exhibit! We have commitments of participation from Princeton University Press, Harvard University Press, Cornell University Press, Yale University Press, the University of Pennsylvania Press, the University of North Carolina Press, and Brill, with interest from several other presses as well. We will also be able to give away most of the books at the end of the conference, which is a lovely perk of our new arrangement.

At the Prize Awards Luncheon, which will be held on Friday at the hotel, ASCH will present seven prizes to some very deserving books and authorsCongratulations to the winners, and many thanks to Anne Wills and the Research and Prizes Committee for their very hard work this year. The luncheon (good food, not too expensive) will be a great celebration, as well as a time to remember why we do what we do at ASCH. Please do plan to attend if you can.
