The New York State Association of European Historians is an informal association of historians who are interested in the history of Europe in the broadest sense (yes, we include the British Isles and colonial areas if the topic is related to European development).
Despite its title, the Association is not limited to individuals residing in New York State. Any scholar is welcome to participate in the annual conference including panelists from all over the United States and Europe. Graduate students who are at dissertation stage are welcome to offer proposals.
The NYSAEH is an excellent place to try out ideas- members are extremely supportive, while providing constructive comments that can be used to sharpen or refine your arguments.
Finally membership is mostly an act of the will. They do collect nominal dues at the annual meeting, but mostly members are members if they want to be.
