The Inclusive Historian’s Handbook

The American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) and the National Council on Public History (NCPH) announces the publication of The Inclusive Historian’s Handbook. This reference source supports inclusive and equity-focused historical work in published work by:

  • Sharing a knowledge base that invites more people to engage in history projects;
  • Providing concrete examples of how to make history work more relevant;
  • Centering equity, inclusivity, diversity, and public service;
  • Offering accessible windows into the many ways public historian work

The Handbook provides easily accessible information for historians working in multiple contexts. Authored by field experts, the entries combine practical advice with critical reflections and telling examples. Because it is a multi-authored project, it does not speak with a single, authoritative voice. Rather, authors offer their perspectives and share ideas and recommendations drawn from experiences in the field.

The Handbook is for individuals and groups engaged in historical work in a wide range of settings—not just paid professionals or academic scholars. It is intended to provide community groups, educators, museum professionals (paid and unpaid), students, scholars, activists, historical societies, preservationists, archivists, and others with easy-to-find information that is directly applicable to inclusive history practice. AASLH and NCPH hope that the content is accessible to all people who are doing historical work, including those who may not identify as historians.

The Handbook is available online.
