Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies pres.

EIHS Symposium: Exhibiting Histories, Engaging Publics in Detroit

Important Note: This event takes place at the Detroit Historical Society. Attendance is limited; registration is required. Transportation and lunch provided. Click "related links" to access registration page.

Join the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies and the Rackham Program in Public Scholarship as we hit the road to engage history on display at the Detroit Historical Museum. Stepping outside of our regular meeting place, we will spend time examining questions of audience and public engagement. Using the museum’s exhibits on Detroit’s early history and the 1967 rebellion, as a starting point, this event aims to spark conversations with Detroit Historical Society staff about the meaning of historical work in the public sphere. We will consider the benefits of doing historical work in public and the landscape of public history in general, as it continues to shift in response to current events, community advocacy, and scholarship.

Joel Stone (Senior Curator, Detroit Historical Society)

This event is part of the Friday Series of the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies. It is made possible by a generous contribution from Kenneth and Frances Aftel Eisenberg. Presented in partnership with the Rackham Program in Public Scholarship.
