On Public History in Canada

January 20, 2015 § 1 Comment

This is shameless self-promotion which is, of course, what this site is for.  I had this post published on the NCPH’s (National Council on Public History) History@Work blog today.  In it, I discuss the difficulties in being a Public History practitioner in Canada.  I imagine this will ruffle some feathers, but I can live with this.  It arises out of a series of discussions I had with two men named Nick, Nick Sacco and Nick Johnson, both of whom were at the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis at that time, at the NCPH’s conference last spring in Monterey, California.  The Nicks are both pubic historians of non-American topics, and I am, of course, a Canadian who does Public History (though I am obviously now based in the States).  Nick Sacco’s piece was published in August, wherein he looks at the role of the NCPH in international Public History.
