Exciting News About History News Network

Dear HNN Readers,

As many of you know, History News Network’s partnership with the George Washington University recently came to a close. Many of you have expressed your support and hopes that HNN would find a new supporting partner for its work of putting the news in historical context and boosting the voices of historians in the public sphere.

Now, we can announce that we have entered such a partnership.

We will be able to share more details soon, but for now the most important news is that this partnership will keep the HNN website online and preserve access to all of the previously published content that has appeared on HNN in 23 years. It will also allow us to make technical and design updates to the site that will make it easier for you to search, read and navigate that content.

HNN’s editor is working with HNN’s new partner on a plan to quickly resume developing and delivering new content to our readers, and to continue to curate news about historical discovery, the work of historians, and public discussions about the ways in which the past informs the present.

This is exciting news for HNN and we will share more information soon. In the meantime, we thank you for your continued support of our work.
