TIME’s new partnership with the leading history platform will provide readers historical analysis of U.S. current events and public debates

Today, TIME launches a new partnership with Made by History, a leading history platform, to produce rigorous historical analysis of U.S. current events and public debates in an easily digestible format designed for the general public.

The partnership expands content on TIME's history vertical under TIME Ideas, which launched in 2014, and has since become a trusted outlet for the world's top historians to share their knowledge with its global audience of 120 million. In partnership with TIME, Made by History will go behind the headlines of today’s news to provide context and clarity through carefully researched and edited articles written by a diverse group of today’s most prominent and promising scholars.

“A historian's perspective always adds a crucial level of depth to any news story—after all, you can't truly understand what's happening today without knowing how we got here,” said TIME’s managing editor, and the founding editor of TIME’s history section, Lily Rothman. “Throughout our own 100-year history, and especially since the launch of our history vertical nearly a decade ago, TIME has been dedicated to telling the stories behind the news. I'm so excited to partner with Made by History to take that tradition to the next level.”
