History and the Public

The History and the Public book series, edited by Steve Conn, aims to foster conversations among practitioners, public historians, and academic historians of all stripes from the United States and internationally. This series begins with the assumption that almost all the work we do as historians has a public dimension and a public purpose. We will publish research monographs, author collaborations, and edited collections that examine the variety of ways in which history and historians interact with a wider public. The series will broaden our conception of what is meant by "public history," while also demonstrating the role historians can and should play in the civic arena.
