Event description
A one-day symposium bringing together public historians, academics, community heritage groups and local organisations.

About this Event

As part of the forthcoming UCL Public History MA programme, which will be based at the new UCL East campus in Stratford, this one-day symposium will bring together public historians, academics, archivists, community heritage groups and local organisations to reflect on 'The Practices of Doing Public History'.

The symposium will include two panels, a performance and a community consultation event led by the East End Women's Museum. The day will close with a roundtable discussion on topics such as regeneration, the ways in which public historians engage with or resist change in the local area, and the role of the university and other institutions in this process.

The event features presentations about a diverse range of public history projects and organisations including:

  • 'Pride of Place: England’s LGBTQ Heritage' - https://historicengland.org.uk/research/inclusive-heritage/lgbtq-heritage-project/
  • Black Cultural Archives - https://blackculturalarchives.org/
  • 'Shrouds of the Somme' - https://www.shroudsofthesomme.com/
  • 'Playing the Archive' - https://playingthearchive.net/about/

Schedule and speakers tbc.

Attendance is free and open to the public. Please book to reserve your place.
