After some fits and starts, the Working Groups' case statements are now posted on the NCPH website. Participants were selected for each group when they answered the call issued last October. As a warm up for the discussion, they have written 2-3 page statements about their particular interest or approach to the group's topic. Statements are posted for the benefit of the group and for anyone else who is simply curious. You are welcome to sit in on the working group conversations during the conference. This year they cover a wide range of material, from public history labor issues, to historic preservation, racial diversity, the civic value of history, and new digital media, to commemorating the Civil War and preparing to teach public history.
