Public History and the Infinite Archive, April 22, 3:30 PM

Public History and the Infinite Archive April 22, 3:30 p.m., Paley Library, Lecture Hall Please join us in welcoming renowned public historian William Turkel. Dr. Turkel, who received his PhD at MIT and teaches at the University of Western Ontario, examines how the web has changed public history. It has the potential to become an infinite archive, the largest and most radically unfamiliar archive ever created. Turkel asks: how can historians and other humanists adopt new methodologies to make the best use of it for research, teaching and public dialogue? Join us to discuss this question facing today’s scholars. This event has been co-sponsored by the American Studies and History Departments, the Center for the Humanities at Temple and the American Philosophical Society.
