American Historical Association issues report addressing the interests and concerns of public historians
The report of the American Historical Association's Task Force on Public History, accepted by the Council at its January, 2004 meeting, is now available on-line.
The report suggests ways for the AHA to address the interests and concerns of public historians within the Association and the profession, as well as ways of building a closer relationship between public historians and their academic colleagues. The report outlines an ambitious public history agenda for the AHA. AHA staff, divisions, and committees have already begun implementing some of the task force's suggestions, and will carefully consider each recommendation in the context of available resources and other AHA priorities.
The AHA and the Task Force on Public History invite you to read and comment on the report.
