CALL FOR NCPH WORKING GROUP PARTICIPANTS
Providence, RI, April 2-5
NCPH working groups, led by senior practitioners and involving up to twelve participants, will allow conferees to explore in depth a subject of shared concern. In these innovative seminar-like conversations, participants will have a chance to discuss questions raised by specific programs, problems, or initiatives in their own public history practice with peers grappling with similar issues. For the 2009 Annual Meeting, seven working groups are being assembled:
• Public History as Work
• How Do We Get There? Racial and Ethnic Diversity within the Public History Profession
• Bearing the Standard: Public Historians Role in the Commemorations of the Sesquicentennial of the American the Civil War
• Where is the History in Historic Districts?
• The Public Value of Public History
• Historical Truths and Reconciliation: Interpreting Indigenous and Other Difficult Histories
To join a working group, please submit a one-paragraph abstract indicating the working group of interest and describing the case you wish to raise with your peers, together with a one- or two-page resume or c.v. by October 31.
