PHANZA is holding a conference this year on the theme of ‘getting the public into public history’. We welcome papers that consider the impact of increased public involvement in public history. This includes public contributions to museum exhibitions, websites and books, sometimes via social networking sites such as Flickr and Facebook.
We are also interested in papers that reflect on efforts made by historians to take history to the public via television or the web, or within civic spaces.
Papers are welcome, too, on other aspects of public history practice. For example, the experiences of heritage professionals involved in the aftermath of the Canterbury earthquakes or the Queensland floods, or the challenges faced by public historians during the recession.
