Emerging History Professionals Affinity Community
The Emerging History Professionals (EHPs) Affinity Community supports, connects, and unites the newest generation of state and local history practitioners.


Our Goals
Our goals include providing support and professional development opportunities for emerging history professionals and creating and maintaining physical and digital spaces where EHPs can meet, discuss ideas, and network. To achieve these goals, we plan to arrange mentoring sessions between EHPs and experienced professionals, offer CV and interview advice, organize networking opportunities, schedule experiential and problem-solving sessions at the annual conferences, and encourage the building of friendships among EHPs.


What is an EHP?
Anyone in the early stages of a public history career is an Emerging History Professional. This includes graduate and undergraduate students, hobbyists, early-career professionals, and any other AASLH members who feel that they would benefit from the support offered by this affinity community.
