In an effort to highlight the diverse range of scholarship at the upcoming annual meeting, we’re highlighting different sessions on the blog each week.

The AHA’s Tuning project brings together faculty from colleges and universities nationwide to define what students should know and understand at the completion of a history degree program. Up to 85 new institutions will come together at the annual meeting for a workshop to extend and advance Tuning.

Where did “Tuning” come from? What are its reference points in other nations? How has Tuning impacted global discussion of the discipline? Panelists will answer these questions and more as they discuss the origins of the Tuning movement in the European Union and Latin America, and help American audiences understand the widely shared qualities of historical study.

See below for more information about the session.
