Features

For scholars interested in joining wide-ranging conversations about the recent past, MAH offers not only top-quality research articles but also a lively “below the fold” section with special features and innovative content. Historians are not always able to fit all of their insights and findings into their books and research articles. MAH therefore provides a place to share that extra creativity and passion. Click on the links below to view all the content published in each section.

MAH welcomes proposals for forums or other special features.  Please send summaries of no more than 250 words to mahist@bu.edu.
