GHI Blogs

 

The GHI publishes several blogs to provide a different forum for new academic research fields to connect with new audiences. The blogs take advantage of the GHI’s professional editing capacity to help disseminate “work-in-progress.” “History of Knowledge” was established in 2016 as part of the GHI’s new research concentration in the history of knowledge; “href” was launched in 2018 and is is dedicated to the use of digitized primary source materials in studying, teaching, and researching German and global history; and “Migrant Knowledge” was created in 2019 to to foster and disseminate research at the nexus of migration and knowledge studies.
