The Appendix is an online magazine of "narrative and experimental history." It was co-founded in fall of 2012 by Benjamin Breen, Felipe Cruz, Christopher Heaney, and Brian Jones. A stated goal of the journal is that "scholarly and popular history need to come together."[1]

The journal features articles from historians, anthropologists, artists, journalists, and other writers. The journal has been praised by Lapham's Quarterly,[citation needed] The Public Domain Review,[citation needed] Dan Cohen (academic),[citation needed] the blog of the American Historical Association,[citation needed] and novelist Midori Snyder, who called it "a terrific highly interstitial journal, that combines in a unique fashion history and narrative."[citation needed]

Material from The Appendix has been featured on the websites of The Atlantic,[2] Slate,[3] Jezebel,[4] and the Smithsonian Magazine.[5]
