What does radical history look like in a digital era? For the past thirteen years, History Workshop’s online magazine has been trailblazing in historians’ use of the digital to make the production and communication of history a radically democratic activity.
Join us on Friday 24 February from 6-8pm, at Birkbeck’s Clore Centre, to celebrate the launch of History Workshop’s new website.
A roundtable of History Workshop editors – past and present – will discuss the practice and politics of public history. What creative and digital methods of communication can we use to platform a wider range of voices and histories? Why is bringing the past into dialogue with the present is more urgent than ever? How are changes in the nature of the university shaping public history, and vice versa?
