The AHA has created "The History News Service" designed to develop linkages 
between historians and the popular press.  Newspapers want op-ed articles 
that reveal how an historical knowledge of a current issue deepens a 
reader's understanding or provides a new perspective rather than provide 
mere historical background.  We need historians to generate ideas for op-ed 
pieces, contact potential writers and help edit submissions.  We have a web 
site:  If you'd like to 
be involved contact Joyce Appleby at or call her 
at 310-470-8946.
