Piloted in 2014, NCPH Mini-Conferences are designed to help our members maintain the energy, conviviality, and productivity of the annual meeting year-round. We recognize that not everyone can make it to our national annual meeting every year, and mini-cons are an opportunity to strengthen your public history community on a smaller scale. Locally organized by an NCPH member or member institution, with support from the NCPH office, mini-cons (hosting one or attending one!) are a great way to meet fellow public historians in your region and see what the local public history community is up to.
If you are interested in organizing an NCPH Mini-Con in your city, or at your university or institution, please see the Guidelines for Organizing an NCPH Mini-Con. Mini-Cons are a new initiative for NCPH, and we welcome variety and creativity both in form and in content as we discover together how best to adapt the NCPH conference experience at the local level.
Past mini-cons are found here.
