Call for Contributors - Public Historians in the Classroom: Essays on Teaching Public History

New York,
Type: 
Call for Publications
Date: 
February 1, 2019
Subject Fields: 
Public History, Digital Humanities, Historic Preservation, Oral History, Teaching and Learning

In the last two decades, hundreds of scholarly books have appeared on public history, memory, museum studies, historic preservation, and related fields, but few have addressed teaching public history. A vast literature exists within the scholarship of teaching and learning, but these studies tend to examine classrooms from an altitude of 30,000 feet, and few address public history. We have a need for more pedagogical work on the teaching of public history, but we do not need more theory, jargon, or how-to-do-it manuals. What we need are stories.
