2018 marks the centenary of the end of the First World War, and the end of a four-year round of commemorative and other historical events associated with 1914–1918. While centenary moments have sparked the funding of commemorative monuments, exhibitions and other events, there has been comparatively little public engagement with the archaeology of sites associated with war. In June 2018 the Australian National Maritime Museum will host a conference to investigate the relationships between public remembrance and archaeology.
Please note that HISTORY ACTS 09 – DISABILITY will now take place in Room 407 at 30 Russell Square.

The house where antislavery activists William and Letitia Still resided in the early 1850s still stands in Philadelphia, and has recently been nominated for protection to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places. The advisory Committee on Historic Designation (CHD) will consider making a recommendation for approval on the nomination on Wednesday, February 14th. The Philadelphia Historical Commission (PHC) will likely decide whether to add the building to the Register at its March 9th meeting.

I am seeking papers for a proposed panel for the upcoming (2019) meeting of the American Historical Association. The panel is tentatively titled "Loyalty and Competing Narratives in Oral History," and deals with the challenge of if and how, and to what extent, the historian should or must privilege their own interpretation over the meanings that interlocutors assign to their own stories. The working abstract can be found below:
