National Council on Public History Opportunities

Check out the NCPH site for the upcoming Indianapolis conference.

Attention, NCPH Student Members!
Don’t miss an upcoming chance to present your work and make valuable connections!
What?  NCPH is sponsoring the poster session at the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) this fall in Detroit, MI. This is a great opportunity for students to share their work with fellow public historians and to discover the work their peers are doing, and we want to make sure that you do not miss the opportunity to participate.
Why?  The poster session format is an excellent forum for sharing visual or material evidence, engaging in one-on-one discussions about your project, and soliciting feedback about works-in-progress. It’s also a great, low-pressure way to participate in a conference for the first time. Those of you who recently attended NCPH’s annual meeting in Baltimore, MD will recognize the format which always garners a lot of positive attention from attendees.
When?  The poster session will be at the Cobo Center on Friday, September 16. Proposals are due June 1
How?  Poster session proposals must be submitted electronically in one PDF document and must include your contact information, a short abstract describing your project, a one-page C.V., and a mock-up of your proposed poster. For more details about the submission process and requirements, please carefully review the Call for Posters at

P.S. If a June deadline is too soon for you, the call for posters for NCPH’s 2017 annual meeting next April in Indianapolis, IN  will open in July, with a deadline of October 1.
