2020-2021 Communication in History

How do we tell our story? How is our story told? Communication is fundamental to the experience of being human. Our history is rich with the different ways we talk to each other—the various ways we communicate to our peers, to our elders, to our descendents yet to come. This year you get to explore this aspect of us through the National History Day Theme: Communication in History.

Dr. Cathy Gorn, Executive Director of National History Day, introduces this years theme in the following video:

Do more exploring of this theme through the Communication in History Theme Book and the 2021 Theme Narrative: Communication in History: The Key to Understanding.
