AHR History Lab Submissions

The AHR History Lab invites collaborative teams to develop innovative projects that create new historical knowledge and speak to expansive audiences. History Lab projects involve practitioners of history from across the discipline, including academics, teachers, digital humanists, archivists, community activists, museum curators, documentarians and filmmakers, writers, poets, musicians, composers, and visual artists. The results of their work appear in both the print and digital editions of the AHR. Projects can appear in a single issue of the journal or be spread over multiple issues.

Since the History Lab first appeared in the pages of the AHR in March 2022, it has featured collaborative and often interdisciplinary projects, such as engaged history, monuments, art as historical method, the history of smell, deglobalization, nationalism, historical agency, digital history, and artificial intelligence. 

Proposals for new Lab projects should provide:

  • a 500 word description of the project that includes the central questions it hopes to address, the ways it draws on collaborative partnerships to answer them, and the larger stakes of the intervention;
  • a list of the members of your collaborative team with their affiliations;
  • the format you envision to present your findings in the pages of the AHR, including the use of any digital assets; and
  • a list of potential contributors to the project with their affiliations.

Proposals for the AHR History Lab should be submitted through this link.
