news-wordcloudThe Public History Commons is a place to find news of potential interest to public historians.  We post approximately one group of announcements here each week, largely taking over the function of the National Council on Public History’s long-running listserv, H-Public.  These items, along with additional NCPH-specific news, can also be found in the weekly Public History News Update which is distributed via email to NCPH members.  To submit an item for possible inclusion in these venues, send us an email (news[at]publichistorycommons.org).
