Public History Without Borders: A Case Study of Working with Johannesburg’s Constitution Hill

Public programs facilitate dialogue between academics and professionals, informing scholarship and strengthening practice.

Multiple day conferences, year-long colloquia, individual lectures, “conversations” between individuals, hands-on workshops, and Museums at Noon talks featuring our graduate students all contribute to the remarkable richness of MSP offerings.

Video recordings of some MSP lectures are archived for viewing in our Media Gallery.

Public History Without Borders: A Case Study of Working with Johannesburg’s Constitution Hill

Presenter: Zachary Kopin (PhD candidate, History)

Date:  Friday, November 12

Time:  12:00 pm

Format:  This event is presented in hybrid format, taking place in 2435 North Quad and online via Zoom (registration required). Online participants will be able to ask questions via Q&A.

 

How do public history, government-funded economic development, and social justice intersect? What opportunities and conflicts present themselves when scholars work with communities and partner institutions distant from their own? And what happens when scholars encounter prejudices within their partner institutions that are antithetical to the work they are doing together?
