TenMinuteHistory began as a project to make professional/academic history accessible to a wider audience. Far too frequently history is perceived as just dates, names, and other trivia. This perception of history does not reflect the breadth and richness of the historical profession.
TMH brings the qualities of academic history: historical theory, critical thought, methodology and analysis to people outside of the academy. Much of the content generated as part of my desire to engage with an interested general public can be read on Reddit’s AskHistorians community.
TMH is a ongoing project to make the humanities, in particular history, accessible to all and to promote the value of historical thinking in everyday life.
