AHA in the News

The AHA’s new Guidelines for Broadening the Definition of Historical Scholarship were featured in an Inside Higher Ed article by Ryan Quinn. In the article, Quinn discussed the context of the guidelines and spoke with AHA executive director James Grossman about the inclusion of new genres of scholarship, such as historical gaming, and how those might be evaluated. “This is a new landscape of historical work. . . . Obviously, a lot of what you see out there I would not describe as scholarship, but it clearly has become possible to do scholarship in that way,” Grossman said. “What we’re trying to say to departments is consider it. Let’s not rule things out until we understand better what they are.”
