David Myers, the director of the Luskin Center for History and Policy, participated in a National History Center panel on History and Public Policy Centers at the American Historical Association on Thursday, January 4. The panel brought together directors of history and policy centers to discuss how to bring history and historical knowledge into broader public policy discussions.
This session, “History & Public Policy Centers” will air on C-SPAN 3 on Monday January 22 at 8pm ET.
The Luskin Center for History and Policy is pleased to announce the inaugural class of Innovation Fellows of the Luskin Center for History and Policy for 2017-2018. The Center received an outstanding crop of proposals from faculty and graduate students in the Departments of History, Political Science, Sociology, Anthropology, Urban Planning and the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies at UCLA. The successful grantees were awarded funds to conduct research concerning the application of history to issues of contemporary relevance, or to teach a new course that explores the same intersection.
You can see the list of fellows and their research proposals on this webpage: http://luskincenter.history.ucla.edu/innovation-fellows-2017-2018/.
