SHA's New Public Square

The Public Square is the hub for all things Public History at the SHA, a place for historians in all lines of work—museums, teaching, archives, and more—to gather, learn, and connect. Located in the exhibit hall, the Square will host pop-up exhibits, a Happy Hour, and representatives from local history institutions, as well as feature Public History programs from colleges and universities across the nation. 

This year's Square features: the University of Louisiana's Airstream exhibit on Harvey and an exhibit on enslaved women and resistance in LA; a pop-up exhibit by Florida State University; the University of Georgia showcasing their History of Slavery at UGA Project; Auburn University's demonstration of its digital mapping collaboration; The Woman’s Exchange doing business as Hermann-Grima and Gallier Historic Houses featuring ongoing research on enslaved people; and an interactive exhibit from the Jazz Museum.
