A Blog for American History

Process is the blog of the Organization of American Historians, The Journal of American History, and The American Historian. “We, along with other Italian Studies and Italian American Studies scholars, are unified against Columbus heroification. We have asked ourselves, how does the ongoing and complicated history of Italian Americans’ memorialization of Columbus fit into contemporary decolonizing efforts? We add our voices here in hope of contributing to larger conversations around racism, history, education, and civic commemoration.”
