Journal of History and Ideas

March Newsletter

Editors’ Note: due to the disruption of academic networks and institutions caused by the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, JHIBlog will shift to once-a-week publication for the time being, supplemented by a selection of older posts from our archives. We are grateful for our readers’ understanding, and hope to resume normal scheduling as soon as possible.
Share your lesson plans!
The new JHI Pedagogy platform will connect secondary school teachers and college/university teachers who aim to teach history in explorative, relevant, and revolutionary ways. The platform will consist of two main parts: a database of lesson plans rooted in JHI articles for secondary school and university teachers to make use of and a forum in which teachers can post lesson plans, syllabi, curricula, and pedagogical tools surrounding the teaching of history. 
Send in your history lesson plans and curricula to! If you have written for JHI, craft a lesson plan based on your article!
Calling all graduate students, alumni, and faculty: Please help us support current and future graduate students by sharing a Comprehensive Exam Reading List for Intellectual History and related fields! Lists can be mailed to Check out our current archive here.
