Antiquarian News is Not an Oxymoron

Many of us begin a new academic or fiscal year this week.  In the spirit of new beginnings and renewed vows of organization, AAS has added an RSS feed to our website.  Those who have visited the AAS website recently have no doubt noticed how much content has been added, events promoted, books published, etc.  The list of what’s new at AAS just from this past year is pretty impressive for an Antiquarian organization! 

Here are just a few of the most recent examples:

AAS Fellow

Download Fellowship Applications

Applications for AAS fellowships are now online. The Hench Post-Dissertation Fellowship and Fellowships for Creative and Performing Artists and Writers applications are due in October.

Reading Exhibition

You can ensure you won’t miss out on any Antiquarian News by clicking here to subscribe to the “New at AAS” RSS feed.   Whenever news is added to our website, you will receive a notification in your preferred RSS reader.  We hope this feature will make it easier for you, our friends, to keep up with current developments at AAS.

If you haven’t already, you can also subscribe to Past is Present‘s RSS feed by clicking here.  Or if you’re anything like me and feel more in tune with the past than the present, you can sign up to have Past is Present posts sent directly to your email by clicking here.  Who knew the day would come so soon when e-mail could be considered the older technology?
