Re: The World History Commons

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.

UTA history professor named to 2019 class of Andrew Carnegie Fellows

April 23, 2019

A University of Texas at Arlington professor has been named to the 2019 class of the prestigious Andrew Carnegie Fellows Program, the first UTA recipient selected for this annual program.

John Garrigus, professor of history, is one of 32 scholars in the 2019 Carnegie class of fellows selected from among 273 nominations, and represents the only fellow selected from a Texas university this year.


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?
