SAH Affiliate Groups

SAH Affiliate Groups are comprised of SAH members who share a common, narrowly defined interest, scholarly or otherwise. Members convene to pursue their common interest and may request space at the SAH Annual International Conference to hold a meeting or roundtable on issues that may be of interest to the larger SAH membership. SAH membership is required to participate in Affiliate Groups, and members may join groups at no additional cost. An Affiliate Membership rate, which offers access to Affiliate Groups and SAH Commons, is available for those who wish to participate in Affiliate Group activities without the full benefits of SAH membership. If you have questions, please contact us at
