The AHA is proud to announce the recent publication of the 36th edition of the Directory of History Departments, Historical Organizations, and Historians. Available in both a print version and online, the Directory offers information on 800 history programs and historical organizations and almost 30,000 historians and history specialists.

The print version of the Directory is divided into three sections: history departments in the United States, history departments in Canada, and historical organizations in both countries. The listings provide a basic snapshot of the activities and personnel in the history departments as of summer 2010, including contact information, tuition, enrollment data, and faculty roster (departments are responsible for keeping this information up to date). Information on historical organizations includes staff, programs, publications, collections, and fellowships offered. Following the body of the directory are two indexes: one including all historians listed in the Directory and the other an index of AHA members as of July 15, 2010.

The online Directory includes the same information as the body of the print Directory, with the added bonus that departments and organizations are able to update their information throughout the year.

Departments that already have paid their fee for listing in the Directory should receive their print copy in the mail in the next 2–3 weeks. If your department does not receive its copy, please contact the Membership office to make sure payment has been received.

Individual copies of the Directory are available for purchase in our Publications Shop.
