AHA in the News

Later this summer, the findings of a recent national survey of “people’s understandings and uses of the past” will be released on the AHA website. The survey is a collaboration between the American Historical Association and Fairleigh Dickinson University, and funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Ahead of the release of the full results, various media outlets have published articles on the survey, including History News Network; WCCO radio; the Milwaukee Independent; and two articles in Time, “The Split in How Americans Think About Our Collective Past Is Real—But There’s a Way Out of the ‘History Wars’,” and “‘Critical Race Theory Is Simply the Latest Bogeyman.’ Inside the Fight Over What Kids Learn About America’s History.”
