Due to production delays caused by the COVID-19 crisis, the American Historical Review’s March 2021 issue has been delayed both in-print and online. The June 2021 issue may be delayed as well. In order to make the content of the March issue available, we have decided to inaugurate a new feature, The AHR Unbound. Under normal circumstances, this would serve as a space for us to promote supplementary AHR material—everything from advance articles to additional illustrations, as well as thematic clusters of past and forthcoming content. In this case, we use the platform to disseminate the March articles and other featured content as advance articles.
