For the past 50 years, Perspectives on History has been the principal source for news and information about the historical discipline. Published monthly during the academic year, Perspectives on History offers articles and commentary on teaching, computers and software, history in the media, museum exhibitions, and archives and research. Also includes the most comprehensive current listings of employment openings and historical activities, both within and outside academia.
This summer, the editors of AHA Today and Perspectives on History teamed up to create a mixtape. We’ve come up with a set of tracks to keep road-trip spirits high, rock a house party till the cops show up, and definitely win the affections of a school crush. Just kidding—these are stories from AHA publications over the past year that inspired us, made us stop and think, and generally provided evidence that "historian" is a great thing to be. Side A, "Being a Historian," focuses on careers, while Side B, "Doing History," shows the importance of our research in public conversations. We see this tiny archive as a gift from us to you. Now play it loud.
