ISSOTL in History is in a period of transition. There is a great deal of activity in our field throughout the world, and we are exploring new ideas for ways to share these ideas and enthusiasm. We are looking for tools to make the work going on in the field more readily accessible and for helping our members collaborate on projects and conference presentations. There will be more news on this front in the near future.
There has also been a change of personnel since our last newsletter. Drew Koke, who has done such a fine job of managing our website and newsletter for the last several years, needs to devote his energies to other professional responsibilities. We greatly appreciate the work that he has done, and it is no exaggeration to say that our organization might not have survived without his generous contribution of time and expertise. We are, however, very happy that Lauren Poor has volunteered to serve as Communications Director until our next election of officers. She brings great energy, creativity, and experience with history SoTL to the post, and we look forward to her innovations in the ways that we use the society as a means of drawing together work in the field.
The society is making news. Read more about us!
