HIST 293 - Public History

(3)
IN, alternate years. Public history refers to historical work done outside of schools, colleges, and universities, especially work in institutions such as museums, archives, preservation offices, and cultural resource agencies. It also includes historians who do historical work in business, consulting, and the legal profession. This course surveys the major topics and helps students develop skills used in public history through readings, discussion, guest presentations, and projects. For example, students will learn about the history of public history, employment opportunities for public historians, and public historical issues, and they will reflect on their own career possibilities in this field.
