Upcoming Event: Unconference: Telling Untold Histories at Rutgers-Newark, May 11
Slightly outside of the Greater Delaware Valley catchment area, but PhillyDHers may be interested in the Telling Untold Histories unconference, which will take place on May 11, 9am-4pm at Rutgers University-Newark. As the name suggests, the goal of the unconference is to bring together public historians with librarians, archivists, artists, museum professionals, students, teachers, and community members to question why the histories we tell in public are not inclusive of the diversity of our communities. We also are trying to empower communities themselves to learn how to tell their own stories, with or without these organizations.
The format includes discussion sessions and lightning talks, and a series of skill-based workshops, some digital humanities-focused. Registration is $20 + small service fee on Eventbrite. It would be amazing to have you join us!
