In 2010, the Department of History at the University of Texas at Austin founded Not Even Past as a way to create a public conversation about history. Authored by university faculty and students, this website features book and film reviews (including assessments of historical portrayals in contemporary popular films), information about recent faculty research, and details about interesting archival material. In The Public Historian and Blog sections, visitors can check out essays and shorter reflections by faculty and graduate students, many of which link history to current events and issues. While much of the content on Not Even Past relates to the state of Texas, the project also addresses history from around the globe. Secondary teachers and students, especially, will want to check out the 15 Minute History podcast that provides historical context behind news stories (and is compatible with national history standards).
