Defining the field: Public History – A Textbook of Practice
This Wednesday, 16 November, please join us for a seminar with Thomas Cauvin (University of Louisiana, Lafayette).
Location: Senate House – John S. Cohen Room N203
Public history continues to elude consensus regarding its parameters and purposes and its complexities and ambiguities have only multiplied as the field has gone global in recent years. Thomas Cauvin’s Textbook of Practice addresses this challenge head-on, aiming to fill a gap in the literature on the pedagogy of public history and bringing theories and practices together. The IHR public history seminar is the ideal place to begin the UK field’s engagement with this important book.
