On this special edition of A New York Minute In History we discuss an exciting development regarding the New York History Journal. Starting this year, Cornell University Press will publish the century-old journal. Working in association with an editorial team at the New York State Museum, the Press will expand the scope of the journal to include public history and museum studies.
Podcast co-host Devin Lander, the New York State Historian, is joined by Dr. Jennifer Lemak, Chief Curator of History at the New York State Museum, and Michael McGandy, Senior Editor and Director of Three Hills, an imprint of Cornell University Press, for a discussion about the Journal’s fresh start.

Support for this podcast comes from the William G. Pomeroy Foundation®, which helps people celebrate their community’s history by providing grants for historic markers and plaques. Since 2006, the Foundation has expanded from one to six different signage grant programs, and funded over 800 signs across New York State and beyond … all the way to Alaska! With all these options, there’s never been a better time to apply.
The Foundation’s programs in the Empire State include commemorating national women’s suffrage, historic canals, sites on the National Register of Historic Places, New York State’s history, and folklore and legends. Grants are available to 501(c)(3) organizations, nonprofit academic institutions, and municipalities. To apply for signage at no cost to you, or to learn more about the Foundation’s grant programs, visit WGPfoundation.org.
The project is also sponsored by a Humanities New York Action Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
