Repair Work

March 27-30, 2019 – Hartford, CT

Calls for Proposals

The 2019 Call for Proposals IS NOW AVAILABLE!

Public historians have long been engaged in acts of repair. We restore and preserve old objects and buildings. We reconstruct fragmentary evidence about the past and reconsider the stories it has been used to tell, including stories about past histories and commemorations themselves. We contribute to economic and civic revitalization efforts. Increasingly, we also align our work with social and environmental projects of reparation, putting ourselves in service of overcoming or resisting the effects of past damage, injustice, and exclusion.

NCPH invites proposals for its 2019 conference in Hartford, Connecticut that explore how public history intersects—sometimes purposefully, sometimes with unintended consequences—with the ongoing task of making and remaking places, communities, and polities.

proposals are due by July 15, 2018.

Please note that this year we have enabled a “Save and Continue” function on our session and workshop proposal forms. This will enable you to begin a proposal and return to it later using the link emailed to you. It should also enable you to send the link to your co-presenters for their feedback and edits before submitting. This is our first time using this feature, so please send an email to [email protected] ASAP if you feel it is not working correctly!
