Whether you are an adventurous maverick or a busy person in need of ready-to-use pedagogical tools, we have something for you.

Explore our pedagogical resources—curated collections of primary sources, videos with accompanying assignments and discussion questions, lesson scenarios, ideas for short assignments and homework projects, and more information about opportunities for schools at the Center.


In the late spring of 2020, while we were locked down due to the pandemic and without access to the collections at CJH, we reached out to scholars and asked them about the treasure troves they found in our archives that transformed their research. The stories they shared weave fascinating, diverse tales of discovery across centuries and languages -- reminding us of the importance of primary sources in scholarship, and the power of studying the past.

Enjoy the Eureka! series and get inspired!
