Module overview

In this core module, students engage with public history as it is currently practised across the heritage and education sectors. The module considers the roles of museums and other heritage sites within society, and the challenges associated with producing and practising public history. Within sessions, students learn how to effectively communicate history outside of the academy and take part in workshops where they develop relevant practical skills, such as lesson planning, podcast production, and exhibition design.
