The NCPH (Re)Active Public History mini-con schedule is now live! There are some fantastic presentations planned including two great keynotes. The Thursday October 18th keynote by LaTanya Autry is titled “Beyond Conversations: Transforming Museums through Social Justice Action” and the Friday October 19th keynote “Memory to Action” is by Allison Tucker from the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience.
In addition to the two keynotes there are session from 12:30-7:30 PM on both Thursday October 18th and Friday October 19th. The theme for the conference is “(Re)Active Public History” and is rooted in a desire to critically discuss the active ways that public historians engage with the public, the past, and historical scholarship. I’m really excited about all of the presentations on the schedule and look forward to participating both days.
