Whose History is it Anyway? Public History in Perspective Conference, UCLAN, 5-6 September 2013

This is a multi-disciplinary conference aimed at a wide range of history and heritage practitioners making no distinction between professionals and non-professionals. Papers are thus invited from academic historians, those working or volunteering in the museum, heritage and archives sectors, those working in the media, film makers, funding bodies, policy makers, publishers, along with family, local and community historians.

This conference will explore issues of public engagement in history, the role of professionals in mediating knowledge of history, the role of institutions in interpreting and communicating knowledge and perspectives, and the role that society and the public have in preserving, mediating, creating and communicating their own histories. It is also concerned to explore issues of policy and funding for history research, education, conservation and dissemination.

See conference page for further details and how to apply.
