Every place, every person, and every object has a history, but not all histories are told.

Telling Untold Histories is New Jersey’s annual unconference on public history, museums, cultural heritage and education. We look for human stories yet to be told, explore these histories and ask why some stories are repeated while others remain on the margins. How can the community members who lived these histories shape how museums, historic sites, libraries, and schools tell them in the future?

Because we value the knowledge you bring, this unconference puts you at the center. Participants create the program by suggesting and choosing sessions on the day of the unconference. Feel the suspense building! Workshops offer attendees the chance to learn new skills to help you tell stories. Discussions and activities connect you with new people and leave you inspired.

Join us at Rutgers University-Newark on May 11, 2017 to challenge the usual way we talk about the past and expand what counts as history.
