“Establishing History Communication as its Own Field of Study”
Working Group at the annual meeting of the National Council on Public History
April 2017, Indianapolis
In two years History Communication has grown from a concept to an emerging discipline. History Communication courses will soon launch and historians across the profession have embraced the idea and formed a nascent community. This working group will consider how history communication takes the next steps to become a codified field of study, complete with a set of professional values that we as history communicators are dedicated to protecting as we develop the field.
