“Developing a Public History Program” by Cynthia Brandimarte
From the CCWH Newsletter. In Spring 2000, the National Council on Public History held its annual meeting jointly with the Organization of American Historians, affording historians whose primary interests lay elsewhere the opportunity to learn more about Public History’s theory and practice. This is the summary of session at that annual meeting.
Historians concerned about tenure and promotion policies as they pertain to work in Public History may wish to consult The Public Historian 1999 21 (2). This issue contains an exchange on this subject among James B. Gardner, Constance Schultz, and Kendrick Clements. This issue also contains an article by Noel Stowe, “Public Historians as Faculty: Roles and Rewards.”
