SHA's New Public Square 

The Public Square—the SHA's hub for all things Public History—is back at the annual SHA Meeting! In its second year, the Square will continue highlighting the important work of public historians while also functioning as the central meeting place for all conference goers. Centrally located in the exhibit hall, come to meet, mingle, and chat about the work we do in and with the public. Stop by at any time to talk with folks from local museums, historic sites, archives, and university Public History programs, who will “take-over” the Square for an hour or two during the conference (make sure to check out the schedule in the conference program). The Square will also be a great place to toast friends new and old during its three receptions–the second annual New Attendees Reception (Thursday), the first-ever New Books Reception (Friday), and the second annual Public History Happy Hour (Saturday). 

Be sure to visit and sign up for the book raffle. Books can be donated here:
