Process—the blog of the Organization of American HistoriansThe Journal of American History, and The American Historian—strives to engage professional historians and general readers in a better understanding of U.S. history.


Process welcomes pitches for blog posts from anyone actively engaged in the practice of U.S. history, including researchers, teachers, graduate students, archivists, curators, public historians, digital scholars, and others.

Potential topics include commentary on recent or upcoming events; reviews of film and television of interest to the historical profession; and reflections on teaching, writing, or otherwise doing American history.

We do not accept authors’ requests for interviews about their own publications and we do not accept sponsored posts.
