Attention all public historians! Be sure to attend the “Telling Untold Histories” unconference at Rutgers University, Newark on May 13th! From the unconference website:
“Every place, every person, and every object has a history, but not all histories are told. What if your museum, historic house, archive, library or school chose one little known person, place, or thing and decided to tell its story? How would you do so? What would it look like? How would that story change the usual historical narrative? How would it change your institution?
Telling Untold Histories – New Jersey’s annual unconference on public history, museums, cultural heritage and education – is a forum for exploring how we can channel our passion for more inclusive histories into innovative public work in our state and region. We consider this task in its widest vision and in its everyday institutional realities: how do we, in other words, perform this crucial, ethical work within the constraints of time, funding, and personnel?”
