  • Tuning

    Tuning the History Discipline in the United States The American Historical Association is coordinating a nationwide, faculty-led project to articulate the disciplinary core of historical study and to define what a student should understand and be able to do at the completion of a history degree program. The updated map at right shows institutions where faculty historians have been involved in the project. The blue locations were part of the first wave of AHA participants, beginning in 2012. The red locations joined the project in January 2015, as part of the second phase of implementation. This project has brought together accomplished history faculty historians from a range of 2- and 4-year institutions across the country to define the core disciplinary elements of historical study and the goals of the undergraduate history major. Faculty participants have been working together to develop common language that communicates to a broad audience the significance and value of a history degree. We encourage you to read the current version of the discipline core, competencies, and student learning outcomes, available here. To learn about the history of the Tuning project and how the process works, read more.

You have an archive containing millions of documents related to an event (say, the Arab Spring), but you cannot read them—all you see is a number. It’s the ID number of a tweet, but only the number was saved, and the code no longer exists to display the content. Ramesh Jain uses the example of the move from analog to digital cameras to smartphones to demonstrate that “This century is different from the last.” Photo by Shawn M.
