I ran across this “Project Showcase” on the NCPH website today. It reminded me that public history is so much more than working at museums and historic sites. Public history is also about taking academic conversation outside of the universities and to the public.
This also made me start to think about the podcast series that is going along with the travelling HAL exhibit. The whole thing seem so terribly vague, I’d like to learn more about it. Podcasting might also be something that we want to do aside from HAL as the exhibit comes closer. We could create a story series that highlights the stories of different people whose lives a have been affected by incarceration.
This would also work perfectly with our #learnfromlistening that we were wanting to attach to our exhibit.
