Including Asian Americans in Public History
Tuesday, April 9, 2013
10:00am - 3:00pm
Join Franklin Odo, founding Director of the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American [APA] Program and former Interim Chief of the Asian Division in the Library of Congress, for an exploration of topics related to Asian Americans and public history. What are exemplary and inclusive ways to present Asian American history in museums and at historic sites? How should projects connect historical institutions to communities, including political, labor, and organizational leaders? This workshop will consider the relationship between public history and scholarship in Asian American studies and will examine major exhibits and other public history projects. Workshop participants will be invited to discuss their own projects and to collectively develop public history initiatives focused on topics in Asian American history and culture.
This workshop is part of the Public Humanities Professional Development Series.
Registration required by April 5.
