I love this article because it is a call for all academics to be pro- public. Often times, I feel that being pro-public falls on public historians – if at all. When we discuss books in class we notice the books audience was other academics. Articles are often written for other academics, the list goes on. The author also recognizes that not all “non-academics” can access the information that academics are referencing, or publishing. Bringing the public into the academic sphere allows for people to not only access information, but also more willing to participate in important conversations.
