Where is public history? Among many other venues, it’s in exhibits, websites, books, and other conventional types of display and publication. This section of [email protected] will provide a forum to showcase and discuss new projects in the field. Announcements of new exhibits and projects can be emailed to the editors and will be posted on our “New in the Field” listing.
At the same time, history exhibitry is changing along with the rest of culture. We discuss and review non-conventional forms of historical display in our “Off the Wall” section.
