“The past is never dead. It’s not even past,” William Faulkner once said. Taking these words as inspiration, the Department of History at The University of Texas at Austin has launched a new website for history educators and enthusiasts. Not Even Past offers a wealth of resources drawing on diverse research by more than sixty members of the UT history faculty. The site features book and film recommendations from faculty and graduate students, free podcasts, daily history fact-checking and myth-busting, oral histories, and three free online courses each semester. Local, national, and global history are all featured, along with a special section on Texas history. January highlights include an in-depth look at Saving Savannah: The City in the Civil War by Jacqueline Jones, including a live chat and video interview with the author and an article on Austin’s moonlight towers by Bruce Hunt.

Book jackets for Jacqueline Jones's Saving Savannah and Emilio Zamora's Claiming Rights and Righting Wrongs in Texas, and the DVD cover for Tomás Gutierrez Alea's Memories of Underdevelopment. All three are featured on Not Even Past.
