The Graduate Center's American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning (ASHP/CML) creates print, visual, online, and digital materials that explore the diverse social and cultural histories of the nation and challenge traditional ways that people learn about the past. Our professional development seminars and institutes help teachers to use the latest scholarship, technology, and active learning methods. ASHP/CML supervises the Graduate Center’s New Media Lab, which facilitates student and faculty digital projects and research.
