Web Site of the Week: History News Network

What happened in the past is already being documented in the present for the future. This complexity is not lost on the talented people at George Mason University’s History News Network (HNN). The HNN was started in 2002 and its mission is “to help put current events into historical perspective.” The distinguished advisory board includes Pauline Maier of MIT and Walter Nugent of Notre Dame. Each week, the website features up to a dozen new op-ed pieces by prominent historians. The homepage includes polls, links to breaking news, and links of importance found on other sites. For perspective and commentary, visitors can also click on the Hot Topics area to learn about everything from the 2012 Election to Women’s History month. Check out the Questions/Answers area to learn about questions people are asking search engines (such as “Did Johannes Kepler murder Tycho Brahe?”) and to read thoughtful responses from HNN staff members. Moving on, the Book Reviews area contains hundreds of reviews of both academic titles and those for the general public. [KMG]
