GLOBAL RESEARCH FOR A 21st CENTURY MEDIA ENVIRONMENT

Future library

Which platforms are most effective for history communication and education? Which are least effective? What makes for a successful history podcast? How have new technologies changed how students learn and consume information about the past?

The Web and social media have created numerous research questions about the efficacy of history communication. Many of those questions remain unanswered.

Our goal is to foster and share such research. We aim to:

  • Support and fund research that examines these questions.
  • Publish and share results that help inform how we do history communication and history education work.
  • Create a repository of evidence-backed research that scholars and media producers can easily access.
