The Inclusive Historian's Handbook is an online resource co-sponsored by the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) and the National Council on Public History (NCPH). It aligns with AASLH’s and NCPH’s goals of building diversity and inclusion across the historical community.
From: the IHH Website:
"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. We 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 a new resource (introduced in August 2019 at the AASLH Conference in Philadelphia) that will continue to grow -- and that's where YOU come in!
Share the link to the IHH Website and encourage peers in your network to contribute articles. Or better yet, check out the range of existing IHH entries so you can submit a suggestion or article of your own.
The Inclusive Historian's Handbook is already off to a great start and the broader museum and history communities can help it grow!
