Public History Professional Development Seminars

This series is funded by the George Cedric Metcalf Charitable Foundation.

This series offers Public History students to chance to meet and network with practicing public historians, listen to guest lectures, and participate in hands-on workshops. As part of History 9800/9081, this series is mandatory for Public History students and usually occurs during class time, in the third hour.

Other students and alumni are welcome to join us, by emailing Dr. Michelle Hamilton.
