History Camp 2015
History Camp is the unconference for all things history. It was launched last year in Cambridge and filled up days in advance. Some of the feedback from the first History Camp included the following: “Excellent sessions, interesting people” “I hoped it would be good . . . and it was great” “I’d register again in a heartbeat”
This year History Camp is in Boston, near the T and covered parking. It's open to all, but you must register.
