Each year, the editors select a topic for this yearly conversation among scholars. They invite experts in the field to participate in a closed online forum for 4–6 weeks. This conversation is then edited and printed in the September issue.
Teaching the JAH
The JAH editors select two articles each year to be featured in the Teaching. The article is chosen from those already accepted for publication in the Journal; once they have made a selection, the editors invite the article's author to compile an installment with the assistance of the JAH staff.
