Public History Community Forum: March 23, 2012

The Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH) at Rutgers-Camden is pleased to announce its continuing sponsorship of the second annual Public History Community Forum, PubComm12.

The event is to be held on March 23, 2012 at the Woodlands Historic Mansion, Cemetery, and Landscape in West Philadelphia.  Registration will start at 12:30PM and the meeting is expected to last until 5PM.  There is no registration fee.  This free conference is geared toward current public history graduate students from around the Philadelphia region.  Students are encouraged to attend to listen to professionals from across the public history community discuss their own career paths.  Speakers will explain how they came into the field and their current employment, as well as the most important steps they took to achieve success.

The event is free, but pre-registration is necessary.  Current graduate students and emerging professionals in public history and museum studies are strongly encouraged to attend, as are interested undergraduate students.  Established professionals interested in sharing their wisdom are always welcome.  To register, visit PubComm12’s Eventbrite page.  For further information, Sara Borden at
