BUILDING THE FUTURE OF HISTORY

Future library

The History Communication Institute (HCI) promotes the effective and ethical communication of history through new media and new technologies–and seeks to improve how social media and the Web treat information about the past.

Through trainings, programming, resources and funding, we’re creating a diverse community of stakeholders focused on improving the overall landscape for history content online and building the future of teaching and communicating historical information more broadly.

Together, we’re creating the future of history.
