Module overview

This module aims to enhance your understanding of how history is communicated and consumed by the general public outside academe, through such institutions as museums, archives and heritage sites. It will encourage you to both engage with the theoretical issues surrounding ‘public history’ and observe delivery of ‘public history’ in the field, learning how its practitioners approach it and how the public consumes it.
