Shared Authority: Public History, Social Curation, and Social Practice

Tue, Nov 10, 2015 | 2:00 pm

Join Temple University Libraries, the History Truck, and the Temple University Public History Program for a conversation with historians Michael Frisch (Professor of History & American Studies/ Senior Research Scholar at the University at Buffalo, SUNY) and Cindy Little (Philadelphia History Museum at the Atwater Kent) and History Truck creator Erin Bernard. These three innovative public historians will discuss the meaning of shared authority and ask: How do mobile tools suggest new modes and approaches through which public historians and their communities inclusively curate projects? They will also examine socially-engaged public history practice, from apps to vehicles, illuminating what social curation and mobile history can be in the years to come.
