Public History Today: Current Challenges, Future Directions

Shumaker Research Building Room 139

What has made public history a leading area of historical practice?  What explains the rapid growth of the field, and what does the future hold?  Join two distinguished public historians and U of L faculty for a lively discussion about the promise and potential of public history.  John Dichtl, Executive Director of the National Council on Public History (NCPH), and Craig Thomson Friend, CHASS Distinguished Graduate Professor and Director of Public History at North Carolina State University, will speak about the current state of public history and emerging trends.  U of L faculty members Daniel Vivian and Lara Kelland will serve as moderators.  We expect a challenging and incisive discussion.  If you want to know how history will be done in the twenty-first century, this evening is for you!
