U.S. Intellectual History Blog

The African American Intellectual History Society

Readers of this blog – and members of the Society for U.S. Intellectual History – will be excited by the arrival of a sibling society and blog: the African American Intellectual History Society (AAIHS). The AAIHS was founded in February 2014 in order to “foster dialogue about researching, writing, and teaching black thought and culture.” In July, their blog went online and it has already become an active and interesting place. Among the regular contributors are two scholars who should be familiar to our readership: Chris Cameron, who has been a frequent guest blogger at USIH, and Lauren Kientz Anderson, who was a regular blogger for us.

I look forward to continuing to follow the AAIHS blog and hope that our blogs – and societies – can work together in the future!

  1. Thanks for writing this, Ben. I’ve loved their material since the blog launched–and you’re right, we’ll definitely have to find a way to team up with them!

    There’s some really good stuff going on in terms of history blogging–a diverse array of different blogs, different topics, all united by a dedication to excellent scholarship and reaching people through the Internet.

  2. Thanks for posting this, Ben. And good timing! It just became official this morning that the good folks at AAIHS will join our friends at the Junto Blog in sponsoring two panels at the 2015 S-USIH Conference in Washington DC. Hopefully this is the beginning of a long and mutually beneficial relationship.
