For Media


Looking for a historian to interview?

First, use WAKH to locate a historian by subject, chronology, or geography in the “expertise by area” page (please note that these are very broad).  Use our search page to locate more specialized expertise.  Keywords have been added by each historian in building their profile.

Second, contact historians whose profile notes “Media Contact” (vs “No Media Contact”).

Third, responsibly quote and cite these women experts.
