American Historial Association-Resources for Public Historians

The AHA has long been an advocate of public history and has regularly expressed a strong commitment to its practice. In 2001, the Council of the AHA created the Task Force on Public History, which submitted its final report to Council in January 2004. The report recommended that the Professional Division be responsible for ensuring continued progress on addressing the concerns of public historians.The AHA continues to partner with affiliates on initiatives of concern to public historians, as well as publish regularly on public history in Perspectives on History.
