Call for Dine Around Topics
We’re looking for volunteers to suggest a topic for ‘Dine Arounds’ on Thursday, April 18, 5:45pm. Volunteer facilitators pick a focus for the dinner conversation, select a nearby restaurant (see the list of recommendations on p. 6 of the Program) and make dinner reservations, and agree to lead their group to dinner. Participants simply stop by the conference registration desk to sign up on the dine around list of their choice. (Space is limited, but it’s free; participants cover the cost of their own dinner.) Email NCPH at [email protected] by Friday, March 15 to suggest a topic.
Topics this year will include:
• Interpreting Women’s History at Historic Sites – sponsored by the National Collaborative for Women’s History Sites
• Re-Connect Material Culture to the Spiritual Realm
• Spoiling Context and Embracing Folklore: Have cable series like American Digger and America Unearthed complicated or facilitated the role of the Public Historian?
• The Role of Public Historians in the “History Wars”
• A movement to create a national brand for history.
