Applied History, the practice of bringing historical perspective to bear on current dilemmas and conflicts.

Patty Limerick has been “turning hindsight into foresight” by conjuring up innovative strategies to convey deeper understandings and reflections, on Western issues to a wide range of public audiences. After decades of field-testing these strategies and techniques, she is well-positioned to invite emerging scholars into a promising and expansive domain of historical practice. The Applied History Initiative offers young historians the opportunity to cultivate new skills and build a community of support.
