Be Part of the Public History Discussion on Sports History

Linked below is the 2016 National Council for Public History call for working group discussants. Working groups provide the opportunity to engage in a rich dialogue with colleagues. Participants circulate case statements and have on-line conversation before the conference. At the conference, they engage in a structured conversation based the case statements. There is also the potential for on-site activities such as pop-up exhibits and walking tours.

To join a working group, please submit a one-paragraph email message to describing the issues you wish to raise with your peers, together with a one-page resume, c.v., or biographical statement by October 15.
