Jump to: navigation, search

History News Network (HNN) at George Washington University is a platform for historians writing about current events.


HNN, originally hosted by George Mason University moved to George Washington University in 2017.[1]


Although the HNN resides on GMU's server, it operates independently of the university as a non-profit corporation registered in Washington State. The editor and founder of HNN is Richard Shenkman, associate professor of history at George Mason University; its Advisory Board includes other academic scholars such as historians Pauline Maier, Gil Troy and Joyce Appleby, and Leonard Steinhorn. HNN sponsors several history-oriented blogs including Liberty and Power (coordinated by David T. Beito), and Cliopatria (coordinated by Ralph E. Luker).[2][3][4]
