(I am a new faculty member in the Department of History and Director of the Public History Collaborative (PHC), a new initiative promoting a collaborative approach to history within and outside of the university. The PHC hosts monthly workshops that seek to model this collaborative ethic by having a presenter share an idea or project (for 15-20 minutes) and then be in conversation with attendees. Next week, Karen Zimmerman, art dept faculty, will share family photographs of Japan and U.S. from the early-mid 20th century.)
