The Mason Historiographiki is a wiki (collaborative website) designed to be used by graduate students in history at George Mason University who are preparing for written or oral comprehensive examinations as well as by anyone interested in their take on the literature of history. In its initial incarnation, it will focus on twentieth-century United States history.


The historiographiki is composed of two types of entries: topic entries and book entries. Book entries cover individual books, much like book reviews in academic journals. Topic entries cover key events and historiographic debates, providing a framework for the individual books and pointing out areas where more reading must be done.
