2014 CFH Biennial Conference
September 25-27, 2014
The General CFH Conference chair, Jay Green, writes: Contemporary historians have a somewhat complicated relationship with "the public." We long to have "public" audiences who will be challenged and shaped by our work, but most of us tend to produce highly specialized scholarship and write primarily for other scholars. When we do address the public, our often "myth-busting" strategies can come across as patronizing, contemptuous, and even politically motivated. As historians, who are our "publics"? And what responsibilities, if any, do we owe them? Are their public venues for historical understanding that we should be exploring? Does our peculiar identity as Christians have any bearing on the publics we address, what we have to say, or how we say it? Are there Christian ways of thinking about and doing public history? Is there a Christian public for our work as historians?
In addition to the panels and roundtables, the conference will feature the inauguration of the new CFH President and National Board, a banquet, and other goodies.
