History was founded at the University of Georgia in 2011 by historians Claudio Saunt and Stephen Berry in the belief that new technologies make possible a new kind of research in the humanities, one in which students, scholars, and a broader public are full partners and collaborators. Much as sites like zooniverse.org call on “citizen scientists” and amateur astronomers to help gather and analyze data about the stars, eHistory projects involve “citizen historians” in the amassing and analyzing of historical data. This approach is often called "crowd-sourcing," but it is an unfortunate term because it sets up false distinctions between content experts in the ivory tower and the multitude who accomplish the micro-tasks. We do not believe in such hierarchies. We believe the past belongs equally to us all. eHistory projects, then, are intended not merely to reach a broader public but to involve a broader public. And the resulting "citizen history," we believe, better reflects the way knowledge is created and consumed in our increasingly digital world.

The Junto is a group blog made up of junior early Americanists dedicated to providing content of general interest to other early Americanists and those interested in early American history, as well as a forum for discussion of relevant historical and academic topics. The blog launched on December 10, 2012.
Before email, faculty meetings, international colloquia, and professional associations, the world of scholarship relied on its own networks: networks of correspondence that stretched across countries and continents; the social networks created by scientific academies; and the physical networks brought about by travel. These networks were the lifelines of learning, from the age of Erasmus to the age of Franklin. They facilitated the dissemination&emdash;and the criticism&emdash;of ideas, the spread of political news, as well as the circulation of people and objects.
But what did these networks actually look like? Were they as extensive as we are led to believe? How did they evolve over time? Mapping the Republic of Letters, in collaboration with international partners, seeks to answer these and other questions through the development of sophisticated, interactive visualization tools. It also aims to create a repository for metadata on early-modern scholarship, and guidelines for future data capture.
