About Us
Community Outreach

The Office of the State Historian is dedicated to the dissemination of knowledge about New Mexico history and cultures. Through this initiative, OSH aims to foster collaborations between scholars and communities in an effort to better understand the dynamics of history and culture in New Mexico. Toward this end, OSH hopes to encourage people to see historical and contemporary connections where they might not have before, to see a history that is broader and more inclusive, one that exists between cultures and generations. This expression of our collective past and future is one that has been fully integrated into the work plan of the Office of the State Historian, which includes community forums, lecture series, performances and web based programming that both present and interact with New Mexico history. The staff of the Office of the State Historian continues to volunteer their time on boards, commissions, panels in an attempt to broaden the scope of understanding that is New Mexico history.
