Recently I agreed to chair the committee for the 2014 Award for Excellence in Public History sponsored by The Society of Civil War Historians.
The Society of Civil War Historians solicits nominations for the $5000 Award for Excellence in Public History. Funded by the Blue and Gray Education Society, the award will recognize an outstanding public history project completed and made available to the public in 2012 or 2013 that enhances public awareness and understanding of the Civil War era, including the events leading to the war and its direct consequences.
We are looking for:
- public exhibitions
- media productions (including internet-based projects)
- public programs, events, and tourism initiatives
- preservation projects that include the interpretation of objects, documents, structures, or landscapes
Additional information can be found at the SCWH website. Please pass this along to anyone who might be interested. Thank you.
