Call for Case Studies on Public History


National Archives

Final Call for Case Studies on Departmental Work
with Public History Institutions, Archives and Historical Sites

The History Subject Centre, in conjunction with the Historical Association's Committee for Public History, is putting forth a call for case studies on collaborations between UK higher education history departments and public history institutions, archives and historical sites.

We are seeking examples of best practice, including information on formal and informal work between departments, students, and local history organisations and sites. These case studies should be approximately 1000-1500 words in length and include

  • Descriptions of formal and informal partnerships
  • Information regarding courses and course elements which utilise public history resources
  • Analyses of the challenges and success of these programmes

We welcome submissions from academics, departments and public history organisations throughout the United Kingdom. The cases studies will be published in an edited collection by the History Subject Centre and be distributed to departments throughout the UK.

Publication of case studies will be rewarded with a £50 pedagogical research grant to the author. For further information please contact Melodee Beals at
