History Organizations (Off Campus)
Consider joining a learned society. Doing so is a great way to find out more about what is going on in a field and they are especially helpful for graduates trying to stay current on historical issues after they leave the university. Too, you get on all sorts of mailing lists--including catalogs with big discounts on history books. There are many societies that focus on narrower fields within history; your professors can direct you to them depending on your interests.
- The American Historical Association: Membership brings a subscription to the American Historical Review and the association's newsletter, Perspectives. Student rates are $40.
- The Organization of American Historians: Membership is open to anyone interested in American history and brings a subscription to the Journal of American History or the association's quarterly the OAH Magazine of History. Student rates are $45.
- Membership to The Historical Society brings a subscription to The Journal of the Historical Society and the rather lively bulletin of the society, Historically Speaking, which works to make history accessible and includes articles, debates, and interviews with historians.
- Also of interest, and free, is the History News Network, which seeks to include breaking news involving history and historians, and also includes blogs by historians.
