Historical scholarship also takes other forms.

Students and faculty develop digital history projects, exhibits, preservation projects, government reports, community initiatives, and more. UMass history faculty are public intellectuals who regularly weigh in on current issues in popular formats, such as newspapers and documentaries.

Faculty and students collaborate with numerous interdisciplinary research centers and initiatives and present their scholarship at venues across our region and the world. Faculty and students workshop works-in-progress at our Five College Faculty Seminar in History and the student-run UMass History Journal publishes original scholarship by undergraduate students.
