Students present at NCPH

In April, three of our graduate students attended the National Council on Public History (NCPH) annual conference in Salt Lake City. In addition to attending talks on topics ranging from archives and collective memory to interstate visitor centers and re-interpreting state historical sites, our students presented an exhibit they completed with their classmates in Dr. Zimmer’s Exhibit Design and Development class last semester.

Graduates students Dylan Yonce, Hazel Videon, and Cassidy Vandervoort showing off their pop-up exhibit at the NCPH conference. In addition to showing off the exhibit they created, the students engaged NCPH attendees with questions about how to handle sensitive stories and diverse interest groups when developing exhibits.
