The History Collective was founded by Jason Sager (PhD) and Gwenith Cross (ABD) to provide an online community for historians to network and share research interests. This website will publish posts written by members* about their own research, entries relating to history in the media, and book reviews on either academic monographs or historical fiction. We will also publish relevant videos or podcasts.
Since this a collective, we will adjust this post and the format of the site as necessary to reflect the interests of our readers and contributors. We are looking to create a place where historians can share both scholarly ideas and musings on popular history. Below is a list of suggestions for how you can contribute to The History Collective.
*anyone who contributes to the website is automatically a member. There are no membership requirements or fees.
