Association of Historians of American Art
AHAA provides a lively, accessible forum for: (1) presenting and advancing new approaches to American art; (2) examining problems that confront the field; and (3) identifying scholarly needs and opportunities for its members.
"Before AHAA, there was nothing but the vast and inchoate category of 'American Art,' which on the average had exactly one session at the annual CAA conference. AHAA changed all that. Since its inception, AHAA has done an important and indeed essential service in creating and sustaining a vibrant community of scholars. The organization has raised the profile and visibility of the field, and—through the biennial symposium, dedicated CAA sessions, the journal Panorama, and the website—has become THE go to organization for anyone working in the field today."
