HIST 3405: American Public History
Want to know more about what historians do outside of the traditional classroom? Looking to eventually work in a museum, state/national park, archive, or a historic preservation organization? Take American Public History!
In this course, we will explore the facets of creating history for and with the public. We will discuss the unique benefits and challenges of the field while examining exhibits, monuments, documentaries, historic tours, cemeteries and so much more!
American Public History introduces students to the practice of public history in its various forms as well as its methodological, theoretical, and ethical underpinnings. The course offers students opportunities to explore the diverse ways historians approach preserving and interpreting history and displaying historical research and topics to public audiences.
