AHR Interview presents brief discussions with historians whose work has appeared in the American Historical Review, the official publication of the American Historical Association. Sometimes the interview accompanies an article or a featured review in a current or recent issue; other times it will feature a scholar who has recently been in the news, but whose work appeared in the journal in the past. These accessible and user-friendly podcasts highlight historical scholarship of wide interest and enormous import for issues of the day.
