Revolutionary Narratives, Stories for a Reflective, Inclusive, and Expansive 250th Commemoration

Two co-editors of an upcoming book of essays about historic sites on the eve of America’s 250th anniversary seek submissions from heritage practitioners and humanities scholars to discuss inclusive, expansive, and reflective narratives of the Revolutionary Era (1750-1830). The book is in editorial development for a public history series at an academic press.

The book project seeks to leverage the semiquincentennial to highlight innovation and public engagement in the history, scholarship, curation and interpretation of objects and landscapes of the Revolutionary Era. The intended audience includes cultural heritage professionals and higher education faculty and students in museum studies, public history, material culture studies, and related fields. Contributors may also be invited to participate in the development of a toolkit for historic sites to prepare for a robust and meaningful semiquincentennial.
