This is a place where we can explore issues and ideas informally in short pieces of writing. Things that come up in our classes and stuff we run across while doing research. Historical reflections on contemporary issues. Thoughts on history as a discipline and what to do with a degree in history.
We hope our students at Calvin, our alumni and colleagues around the country and the world, and anybody else interested in the past will find it interesting and useful. We invite you to join in the discussions as we explore the horizons of historical study.
The views expressed in posts on Historical Horizons are those of their respective authors. They do not necessarily reflect the views of the History Department or Calvin College.
