The List exists largely thanks to the involvement of all those who care about making history a discipline of equal opportunity. A large portion of the texts it includes have been recommended to us by historians from around the globe, and the project development was informed by their helpful suggestions. We encourage you to join this effort and help us enrich this resource by contributing new entries.

The criteria for inclusion in the DRL are:

  • At least one author is a member of a group under-represented in history
  • The text can be valuable in teaching UG or PG courses in history

Join us and get funded!

Some of our volunteers went on to apply for grants which paid for their work for us. Would you like to try it as well? We will help you apply and offer any support we can! Find out more.

Contribution Form

Please add as many details as possible. If you want to add multiple entries where some information is the same (e.g. texts by the same author), you might find it easier to do so using the Bulk Contribution Sheet, which you can then send to
