The World History Association, Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (George Mason University), Global History Program (Monash University), Global History and Culture Centre (Warwick University), and other partners are developing a free, online, global and world history resource called the World History Clearinghouse.
The goal is to provide a centralized resource that includes:
• Curated content from institutions worldwide focused on key topics in global history;
• Reviews of new digital world history projects;
• Introductions to the field, including essays on major debates;
• Teaching modules; and
• Annotated bibliographies.
As an open educational resource, World History Clearinghouse is designed to help university, college, and high school world and global history researchers, instructors, and students locate and use the wealth of online resources and further understanding of the issues and debates in world and global history.
This announcement comes from: Merry Wiesner-Hanks, World History Association; Kelly Schrum, Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, George Mason University; Adam Clulow, Global History Program, Monash University; and Giorgio Riello, Global History and Culture Centre, Warwick University.
To facilitate planning, they have a brief survey, but MWWHA will not post the URL to the survey publicly here. If you'd like to take the survey or if you want more information, please contact one of the people listed above, or use the "contact us" box below to contact the MWWHA.

Announcement, January 27, 2016
Commissioner Dr. Libby O'Connell:
“World War I had a lasting impact on our world, but so many people have forgotten its lessons and the service of millions of American men and women. Yesterday, the World War One Centennial Commission announced the winner of the national memorial design competition. As a WW1CC Commissioner, I am thrilled that we will be partnering with Joseph Weishaar to build a national memorial that will honor the service provided by almost five million Americans in the Great War. There are many ways you can help in your community and across your state, so please click here to learn more about the National World War One Memorial in Pershing Park, as well as commemorative activities in communities across the country. Together, we can make sure these extraordinary young Americans get the recognition they deserve. CLICK HERE www.ww1cc.org/selectee”
General Barry McCaffrey USA (Ret.):
“There is a good argument that World War One, this immense tragedy that ended empires, changed the political and economic map of the world, was one of the most senseless wars that was ever fought, and arguably one of the most consequential. At the end of the day this is about American soldiers, sailors, Marines, the beginning of the Army Air Corps, and how they ended the war. We need you to support the Commission so these service men and women get the recognition they deserve.” Click here to learn more:www.ww1cc.org/selectee
