This webinar is about how history can have more impact when it connects the people, events, places, stories, and ideas of the past with those that are important and meaningful to audiences today. This event is presented by John Dichtl. Why are we still talking about this?” “You get paid to do that?” “You need a degree for that?” Every history person knows that history – in theory, study, and practice – is often undervalued or discredited as irrelevant. We also know that “history” is truly inseparable from the “present.” AASLH’s own John Dichtl is a founding member of the History Relevance (HR) initiative, a group of history professionals posing questions about what makes the past relevant today. Join us for a discussion of how history can have more impact when it connects the people, events, places, stories, and ideas of the past with those that are important and meaningful to audiences today.
