Our Public Voice workshops are generously funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and organized by Made By History, Washington Post.
Limited to 20 people
This workshop will feature specific strategies for professional development in academic and nonacademic careers that rely on public-facing history work. It will discuss how to build public engagement into your academic career, specifically new approaches to teaching that integrate public-facing history projects and strategies to build your C.V. and tenure file to credit public engagement work and demonstrate impact. It will also discuss how to build a career in public engagement outside the academy, notably through professional opportunities in journalism, film, television, and public policy.
