Welcome back to our regular series, Historian’s Histories, where we examine the historiography of historians! If you’ve spent any time on the internet lately, then you’re likely already familiar with our next
victim historian, Krista McCracken! Krista is well known as one of the fantastic editors behind the Canadian history powerhouse blog, Active History, and is a model for how to do public history in a socially responsible way. So I am exceptionally grateful and pleased to feature her work here! Enjoy!
Krista McCracken is a public history professional currently working as an Archives Supervisor at Algoma University’s Arthur A. Wishart Library and Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre. Krista’s research primarily focuses on community archives, residential schools, access, educational outreach and Northern Ontario. She lives and works on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe and Métis people.
Because, let’s face it – who has time to catch up on all the journal articles published in Canadian history?
Welcome back to the Best New Articles series, where each month I post a list of my favourite new articles! Don’t forget to also check out my favourites from previous months, which you can access by clicking here.
This month I read articles from:
As many of you know, one of the primary objectives of Unwritten Histories is to shine a light on the teaching and learning of history. With that in mind, I’m proud to introduce a new series here on Unwritten Histories, called “Spotlight.” In each post, I will highlight a different history program or department. Canada is home to a number of amazing history programs and departments, but it’s difficult to understand the differences between them just by looking at their websites. So, in this series, I will be taking readers behind the scenes, so to speak, and talking about the features that each program or department has to offer. While I will be concentrating on Canadian universities to begin with, I do hope to expand this to American and international universities as well, and eventually to also include related programs and departments (like archaeology, museum studies, etc…).
As many of you also know, my Ph.D is from UVic, so it makes sense that I should start with my alma mater! In this first “Spotlight” post, we’re going to be talking with my former supervisor, Dr. Lynne Marks, about the new Master of Arts program in Public History, premiering September 2017.
