Public History Conference 2008

A conference to be held in Liverpool, 10-12 April 2008, organized by the University of Liverpool; the Institute of Historical Research, University of London; and National Museums Liverpool. 

This major international conference, convened in the European Capital of Culture for 2008, develops the debates 'on the uses of history for public purposes and the involvement of the public in the study and consumption of history' that began with conferences at the IHR in London in 2006 and at Swansea University in 2007.

The Liverpool conference will offer a meeting ground for all those engaged in the production, dissemination, and consumption of historical knowledge and heritage, including those active in the higher education, museums, heritage, media, and commerical sectors, and members of the public.

In core strands, speakers from three continents will explore:

  • The Professional Practice of Public History in North America and the UK
  • Museums and Identity: City and Minority Museums
  • How do we Remember Slavery? International Museums and Sites of Public History
  • Public History in Theory and Practice: Art, Archeology, Film, Sport

Key speakers include:
  • Dr Sandy Nairne, National Portrait Gallery, London
  • The Rt. Hon. Frank Field, M.P.
  • Lonnie Bunch, Director, National Museum of African American History and Culture, Smithsonian Institution, Washington
  • Prof. David Dean, Carleton University, Canada
  • Dr Ywone Edwards-Ingram, Colonial Williamsburg
  • Dr Kevin Fewster, National Maritime Museum
  • Dr Christoph Grunenberg, Tate Liverpool
  • Dr Don Henson, Council for British Archeology

  • Prof. Helen Weinstein, University of York
  • Dr W. Richard West, National Museum of the American Indian
  • Profs Jonathan Harris, Richard Kronenburg, W.R. Lee, University of Liverpool

  • audio files of selected papers published on the IHR website
