Public History: A Practical Guide
This text explains what public history is, how it has developed, and its application in practice, including its methodological and practical differences from the academic discipline of history, methods and skills used to practice history in the public domain, and how institutions make history accessible to the public audience. It describes the presentation of history in museums, archives, and heritage centers; methods of communication in public history, such as exhibitions, audio-visual aids, and outreach events; teaching history in schools; community projects, including oral history projects, heritage trails, and community archives research; the use of media, including popular writing, books, radio, films, and television; the role of historians and history in politics and government; and the use of internet-based digital media.
