2018 David Young

 

Holy Family University and Glen Foerd will co-host a Speaker Series event featuring David Young, author of The Battles of Germantown: Effective Public History in America (Temple University Press, 2019). Known as America’s most historic neighborhood, the Germantown section of Philadelphia (established in 1683) has distinguished itself by using public history initiatives to forge community.

This live Zoom event will be held on Thursday, November 4 at 7:00 p.m. EDT. This event is free and open to the public. Register for the webinar here.

Young will discuss ways that regional historic organizations shine more light on diverse history in provocative and creative ways with examples from Germantown and Delaware. Recent efforts engaging in whole-place interpretation of the region’s history, especially of undertold histories of communities largely unrepresented in the historical narratives, show how “effective public history” can serve the cause of social justice.
