The planning committee for the Public History Community Forum (PubComm) is pleased to announce that PubComm 13 will be held at the Cooper Street Library on the Rutgers-Camden campus on Friday, April 26, 2013. Participants are invited to join walking tours of historic Camden designed, researched, and led by Rutgers graduate students of public history. Tours will begin at 1:00pm and following lunch (provided), round table discussions from 3:30-4:45 pm in 15-20 minute segments. The group will reconvene for a brief Q&A before adjourning by 5:30pm.  PubComm ’13 is free.

The Rutgers campus is just one stop in from Philadelphia on the PATCO line (City Hall) and easily accessible on New Jersey Transit?s River Line (Cooper Street/Rutgers). Guides to campus and the Cooper Street Library from PATCO and the River Line will be on hand to escort visitors as needed. A limited number of parking passes will be available as well.  Registration is forthcoming.

PubComm13 is made possible through the generous support of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH) at Rutgers Camden.
