This year’s annual conference of the National Council on Public History (NCPH) is being hosted jointly with the Utah Historical Society from April 10-14, 2024, in Salt Lake City, UT. We are pleased to publish the NCPH’s flagship journal, The Public Historian (TPH), in partnership with the NCPH. For those of you in Salt Lake City for the conference and/or anyone with an interest in public history, TPH‘s editor has curated a selection of articles focused on Utah’s public history, which we have made free to read online for a limited time:

You might also be interested in attending the “Women in Public History” session, which is being facilitated by TPH Editor Sarah Case, among others:

3:30 pm – 5:30 pm
WG6. Women in Public History
(Canyon A)
This session addresses two distinct yet connected action areas:
women in public history and women’s public history. It grows out
of a robustly attended, intergenerational 2023 NCPH session and
subsequent virtual meetups considering the state of women’s public
history (we define “woman” as broadly inclusive and non-binary)
along the threads of the professional, political, and historical. We
place women’s public history as a site of innovation at the forefront
of intersectional, community-engaged thinking while strategizing on
how women practitioners can respond to an increasingly hostile and
precarious labor market and political climate.
Facilitators: Sarah Case, University of California, Santa Barbara
Caitlyn Jones, University of Houston

Angela Tate, Smithsonian National Museum of African
American History and Culture
