Active History at the National Council on Public History Conference

Jim Clifford

Four editors and a larger number of past and present contributors attended a major public history conference in Ottawa last week. It was a great opportunity to share our website with the North American public history community and to learn about new projects here in Canada and in the United States. Many of the presentations focused on the growing connections between digital history and public history, as websites like this one try to reach a broad audience and museums, historic sites and archives develop a virtual presence.
