2018 Twitter Mini-Con: “(Re)Active Public History”

October 18-19, 2018 | Online

NCPH is excited to announce that our first NCPH Twitter Mini-Con will take place October 18-19, 2018. The theme for the conference is (Re)Active Public History and is rooted in a desire to critically discuss the active ways that public historians engage with the public, the past, and historical scholarship.

Modeled after last year’s Beyond 150 Twitter Conference, this NCPH Twitter Mini-Con comes with no conference fees and no travel costs. It is designed to encourage collaboration and public engagement, and to spark discussion in an accessible format. This is a great opportunity to participate in the NCPH community if you can’t make to the upcoming 2019 annual meeting in Hartford, Connecticut.

The schedule is in Eastern Time — if you’re in another time zone, make sure to convert the time!
