With The History List now open to all organizations, we're focused on spreading the word.
Thanks to several colleagues who are helping do just that through local, state, regional, and national conferences and publications:
- Cathy Stanton, Editor of History@Work from the National Council on Public History, in a blog post on a presentation at the national conference in Milwaukee this April.
- Larry Cebula, Assitant Digital Archivist at the Washington State Digital Archives and an Associate Professor of History at Eastern Washington University, in a blog post following the same presentation at the National Council on Public History's annual conference.
- Phil Katz, Assistant Director for Research at the American Association of Museums, writing in the AAM's Future of Museums blog.
- Dan Yaeger, Executive Director of the New England Museum Association, in a recent member newsletter.
- Susan Nicholl. Executive Director at MetroWest Tourism & Visitors Bureau, at the Regional Cultural Convening earlier today in Framingham, Massachusetts earlier today.
- Deb Friedman, Vice President of Public Program at Old Sturbridge Village and a member of the Board of Directors of the Association for Living History, Farm, and Agricultural Museums, at the organization's annual conference, Maintaining Relevance in a Digital Age, which begins tomorrow near Dallas.
- Patty Bruttomesso, Local History Coordinator at Mass Humanities, at the Mass History conference, Taking Center Stage: Conflict & Collaboration in the Peopling of Massachusetts, presented by Mass Humanities, the Massachusetts Historical Society, the University of Massachusetts Amherst Program in Public History, the Joseph P. Healey Library and the Public History Track at the University of Massachusetts Boston and taking place Monday in Worcester, Massachusetts.
- Robin Zeigler, a member of the Board of Directors of the National Alliance of Preservation Commissions and co-chair of the organization's annual conference, Forum 2012, in Norfolk, Virginia this July.
And thanks to early supporters, including Diane Calvano, who has provided two opportunities (October 2011 and May 2012) to present to the regional Historical Sharing Group she leads, and Gloria Greis, who provided an opportunity to present last December and get feedback at a meeting of The Charles River Group, which she leads.
Is your organization having a meeting or conference in the coming months? If so, please let your colleagues know that The History List is now open to them--at no cost--to publicize their organization, event, exhibit, or site. This is a convenient, very graphical one-page handout.
