Education Building - ED 315
This roundtable brings together leading public historians. They will discuss how the intersections of digital and public history hold tremendous potential for increased public engagement, research dissemination, and community-building, while also providing new avenues for historical scholarship.
While some individuals advocate a return to larger-scale national narratives that answer the "big questions," this roundtable will explore how digital and public histories can be used to create histories that are at once more accessible to the public as well as more reflective of the increasing diversity of our nation.
With financial support from the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences Aid for Interdisciplinary Sessions Fund.
Speakers: Krista McCracken, Archives Supervisor, Arthur A. Wishart Library and Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre, Algoma University; Jessica Knapp, Online Engagement Coodinator, Canada's History Society; Andrea Eidinger, Instructor, The University of British Columbia
