Videri

Videri aims to advance knowledge about history and historiography by providing an open forum for scholars and students to post information about historical works. As a wiki, this site allows any member to edit, revise, and enhance the commentary provided by other members. (Anyone can become a member.) Most of the database consists of summaries of key works of history, organized by field, as well as interpretive essays on important questions in historiography.

Videri was originally founded by graduate students in the History Department at Columbia University in 2004. The database expanded significantly over the next two years, but the site crashed and most of our data was lost. Hopefully this new venture, launched in 2009, will be more successful.
