I was taking a quick look through the back issues of the Radical History Review today and came across an older issue with a great forum called: Reflections on Radical History (Winter 2001). Those of you at a university should be able to access the forum through your libraries. This forum is similar to a recent issue of Left History (Vol. 11, no. 1, 2006) that asked the question “What is Left History?”. We are hoping to start a similar discussion on this website about what is Active History or what is a history for the future. If you have some thoughts about what active history is or what it should be please send them to us through the Organizers page. This blog should provide an opportunity to both start the discussion in the months leading up to the conference and to allow those who cannot make it to Toronto in September to contribute.
