The World History Commons

While checking out my mostly ignored Twitter Feed, I noticed an announcement for something called the World History Commons, an Open Educational Resource sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities. It also has World History Association and Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media banners on the prototype website. 

I am curious if any H-World subscribers have any additional information concerning what this project entails and how long it will be before it is operational?

Just to answer the query of August 24, World History Commons is a free, digital resource with high quality, peer-reviewed content in world and global history for teachers, scholars, and students. It builds on World History Matters, the award-winning websites at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and the New Media at George Mason University, and significantly expands and updates these with new curated content and peer-reviewed links to the wealth of online resources currently available. Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities, World History Commons represents a ground-breaking collaboration between RRCHNM and the World History Association, and will serve as a centralized clearinghouse for materials in the rapidly expanding fields of world and global history.

The site will launch in Fall 2019 but we’ll be continually adding to it. If you’re interested, please bookmark the following: https://www.worldhistorycommons.org/
