New Directions

We are at a crossroads between the old standard and a new normal, forced to choose between paths whose endpoints we cannot see. Digital meetings are here to stay, a great leap forward in making scholarship more democratic and accessible, but their specific form is up in the air. This issue looks to that future. Leila Markosian, Kristen Shahverdian, and Alexandra F. Levy present a new program that addresses contentious issues in “Flashpoints.” The AHA staff gives an overview of several cutting-edge AHA22 Online panels. And Mary Manning’s “History Day Brings Communities Together” introduces us to those who are, quite literally, the historians of the future. What other new frontiers await?
