The American Historical Association is initiating a nationwide, faculty-led project to articulate the disciplinary core of historical study and to define what a student should understand and be able to do at the completion of a history degree program. This AHA project is bringing together accomplished history faculty from more than sixty institutions across the country to frame common goals and reference points for post-secondary history education.
We seek history faculty in any field who work at a broad range of 2- and 4-year colleges and universities in the United States, including those where history is taught outside traditional history departments (e.g. departments of humanities or liberal arts). Preference will be given to those whose applications make a strong case that the applicant will be able to effect change in curriculum at their institutions. The first required meeting for this three-year project will take place June 8-10, 2012, in Washington, DC.
Others, who wish to be available as resources for consultation or discussions as this project develops, may send an email including occupation, title, and full contact information.
The deadline for applications is March 16, 2012. If you have any questions please contact Julia Brookins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
