History Applied

History is not just the past. It provides, borrowing historical geographer Cole Harris's phrase, the "contextual savvy" that allows us to understand the world in which we live, work, and play. Our diverse understandings of history also help shape what futures we believe are possible.

History Applied is an Ottawa-based public history research consultancy. We seek to enliven our understanding of the present through an appreciation of the past and believe that by applying historical insight and lessons, we work towards a better future.

We offer a full range of services, including: research and analysis; oral history interviews; content writing and editing services.
