HIS 5575 - Introduction to Public History (3)


When Offered: Fall
This course explores major fields and contemporary issues within public history, such as oral history, museum interpretation, historic preservation and sustainable development, new media, material culture, and controversy in public history. The course will also investigate the contested relationship between the practice of public history and changing ideas about historical memory, identity, power, and ethics. Through readings and papers, occasional field trips and/or guest speakers, and/or team projects, graduate students will build upon their prior experience with public history, with an eye towards preparing for the job market.
