As leaders in their respective fields, Chicago's historians are passionate about sharing their knowledge with the broader public. In op-eds, media appearances, and public lectures, we marshal our understanding of the past to shape public debates. This selection of articles and appearances showcases recent interventions that engage particularly effectively with audiences outside of academia and provide insights on issues of public concern. Please note that none of our faculty or graduate student contributions to public debates should be construed as statements on behalf of the department or the university; every affiliate of our department speaks only for him or herself.
