The History Collective
The History Collective was founded by Jason Sager (PhD) and Gwenith Cross to provide an online community for historians to network and share research interests. Members are invited to contribute relevant posts on their own research, history in the media, book reviews (academic or historical fiction), and videos or podcasts on historical studies. If you are interested in contributing to The History Collective please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
