Shared Oral and Public History Series


This series presents distinctive works that challenge conventional understandings of not only who speaks for history but also how history is spoken, and for whom. In an era when the possibilities for collaborative research and public engagement are almost limitless when the term history can at once embrace deeply personal life stories and the broad scope of a public museum exhibit the need to explore new methodological models and assess their ethical implications has never been so vital. This series, unique in its focus, provides the pivot for a transformative vision of historical practice.
