On the Cover

Cover of February 2016 issue of Perspectives

Taking its cue from the Twitter hashtag #ILookLikeAProfessor, trending in summer 2015, our February cover celebrates the many looks of historians of 2016. With the kind endorsement of hashtag originator Sara Pritchard, as well as Rusul Alrubail, Adeline Koh, and Michelle Moravec (who gave it significant boosts), we present our take on the idea. So treat yourself to Vanessa Holden’s fashion roundup, and see you next year in Denver. Photographs by Marc Monaghan
