Not Even Past provides dynamic, accessible, short articles on every field of History. Founded in 2010 and developed by the Department of History at the University of Texas at Austin, Not Even Past speaks to everyone interested in the past and in the ways the past lives on in the present.
History leaves no life untouched and the story of every life deserves to be told. Not Even Past is, first and foremost, a home for these stories. It is also a place for all who are interested in history to meet one another and share their viewpoints, to learn what books and films historians are reading and watching, and to gather perspectives on national, international, and Texas events of contemporary interest.
The title of the website reflects our professional and ethical commitment to understanding history as a public conversation about the importance of the past for our actions, values, and beliefs in the present and for the decisions we make today that will affect our lives—and those who come after us—tomorrow.
There are many history-related sites on the web, but few bring together a diverse group of historians with international reputations in every major historical field and time period. Not Even Past does that by drawing on the expertise of the faculty and graduate students of the History Department at UT Austin. The wealth of knowledge and resources these historians offer will now be available to anyone who wants to know more about the past.
