National Council on Public History's Blog History@Work is Seeking Contributions
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Council on Public History
Email The Author: info@publichistorycommons.org
Website: http://www.publichistorycommons.org

"History@Work" (www.publichistorycommons.org) is a multi-authored, multi-interest blog sponsored by the National Council on Public History as a digital meeting place for all those with an interest in the practice and study of history in public.  Like the field itself, the blog is designed to blend scholarly, professional, and civic discourse arising from the practice of presenting history in public.

The blog is “lightly peer-edited”–that is, volunteer editorial teams with interests in specific sub-topics in public history invite and recruit postings, which may then be edited and revised for relevance and focus.  Although defining public history in any conclusive way always proves elusive, the blog's sub-categories aim to cover as wide a range of perspectives and venues as possible:
  • Annual Conference: serves as the central conference blog during our annual spring conference (Editor: John Dichtl, National Council on Public History)

  • Consultants’ Corner: news and discussion of interest to those working as consultants in the field (Editors: Michael Adamson; Amy Canfield)

  • Exhibits & Projects: announcements of new public history projects, plus critical reviews of conventional and unconventional exhibitry in our “Off the Wall” section (Editor: Cathy Stanton, Tufts University)

  • View from the New: issues of particular interest to those who are training to be public historians or who have just entered the field (Editors: Priya Chhaya, National Trust for Historic Preservation;  Laura Miller, University of Massachusetts at Amherst)

  • In the Academy: issues of interest to those who teach in public history programs and/or others in the academy whose work relates to public history (Editors: Denise Meringolo, University of Maryland Baltimore County;  Amy Tyson, DePaul University;  Will Walker, Cooperstown Graduate Program)

  • International Perspectives: cross-cultural or comparative discussions of public history practice around the world; transnational dimensions of the field (Editor:  Cathy Stanton)

  • NCPH: a space for news and updates relating to the National Council on Public History (Editors: John Dichtl, Stephanie Rowe, NCPH)

  • Social/Environmental Issues: pulls together postings on the wide range of public history questions that touch on social justice and the environment (Editor:  Cathy Stanton)

We are actively working to expand our author and editor base. The best way for you to become acquainted with us and vice versa is to propose a guest post.  Posts should be under 1,000 words, relevant to the field of public history in some way, and written to be accessible to a general audience. Photos are welcomed if they are in the public domain or the post author holds the copyright or has obtained permission to publish them online. All inquiries about potential posts should be sent to the editorial team by emailing us at info[at]publichistorycommons.org. Editors may request revisions for length, style, relevance, or clarity.

To propose a post or get more information, email us at:
