Virtual Program: Collaborations on Better Public History
June 3 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us on Tuesday, June 3 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. for the virtual event: Collaborations on Better Public History. During this public event, Mellon Foundation postdoctoral fellows Drs. Maria DiBenigno and Jajuan Johnson will discuss their ongoing work for William & Mary’s Highland and the Lemon Project. The fellows will address how W&M’s initiatives and historic sites help the university to share knowledge and authority, strengthen existing relationships, build new collaborations, and challenge inaccurate historical interpretations. Such cross-institutional effort is central to the current chapter of William & Mary’s history and evolution. The discussion will also open to audience questions and comments on the broad themes of community engagement, “sharing authority,” and ways to re-imagine the possibility of better public histories.
This virtual talk will be presented via a Zoom webinar and broadcast on the Highland Facebook page. To register for the Zoom webinar follow the link below:
