The Public History Minor at Monmouth University invites you to its Second Annual Julian Francis Abele “Out of the Shadows” Virtual Public History Symposium. The Symposium will be held via Zoom on December 13, 2022 from 9AM - 12PM. It will be free for presenters and attendees alike - to allow as many people as possible to learn from, and inspire, each other! 

Please feel free to come and go throughout the day as your schedule allows. We have presentations on “Newark’s Plane Street Colored Church and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Network,” “Shady Rest Golf and Country Club: The Nation’s First African American Country Club," “Saving the James Howe House," “Oral History Efforts at the Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County," “Shared Bodies: Social Patterns in Rural East Jersey and the Formation of an African American Community," “History on Film: The Great Migration and Asbury Park," “Creating a Heritage Walk for Asbury Park’s West Side Community," “The Audacity to Persist: The Homophile League and LGBTQA Student Resistance at Rutgers University (1969-1992)," and “Monmouth University’s Stewardship of Julian Abele’s Great Hall: An Update."

The Symposium is intended as a welcoming place for public history practitioners at all levels, established and emerging scholars, and graduate and undergraduate students to share their public history work on individuals or groups in history whose legacies have been purposefully or inadvertently suppressed, overshadowed, or underappreciated.

The Symposium is named in honor of pioneering African American architect Julian Francis Abele, who contributed greatly to the design of Monmouth University’s Great Hall (previously known as both Shadow Lawn and Wilson Hall).
