Journal of History and Ideas

January & February 2020 Newsletter

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!
The latest number of the Journal of the History of Ideas is now live on Project MUSE!
