AASLH provides many different publications for the field. Through our quarterly magazine History News, Technical Leaflets, books, and our blog, we publish on a wide range of topics and issues to serve history practitioners. From investigations of critical issues to how-to guides and everything in between, AASLH uses our different publication outlets to advance historical practice and the field.
History News Magazines
History News is the official magazine of AASLH. It connects the people engaged in history work to new questions, ideas, perspectives, and each other. By featuring news, current issues, trends, and best practices from throughout the history community, it informs, inspires, challenges, and links together those who preserve and interpret the past. A History News subscription is a benefit of AASLH membership. Each quarterly issue includes featured articles, regular columns, and a Technical Leaflet.
Since 1960, history professionals have been sharing their expertise with AASLH members through these clear and succinct how-to guides. Whether you are seeking information on management and administration, interpretation, research practices, or preservation techniques, or any other subject related to the practice of public history, there’s probably a Technical Leaflet that will help.
AASLH Book Series
The AASLH book series addresses issues critical to the field through interpretive, intellectutal, scholarly, and educational texts. AASLH co-publishes the series with Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
AASLH is always accepting submissions of short articles to be posted on the official AASLH blog. Specifically, we are seeking articles on issues and challenges facing history organizations and their staffs. Blog posts should be clear, concise, and offer obvious takeaways or suggestions.
