I’m heading off to Providence at the crack of dawn Friday for the NCPH conference.  (I know that some of you are already there!)  What will happen when over five hundred  public historians gather in one city?  Will there be an outbreak of historical interpretation?  Will obscure local history websites crash from the traffic?  Find out all this and more at the NCPH conference blog and associated media (you’ll find me and others tweeting the conference, of course.)  The conference blog already has tens of bloggers who are contributing info about presentations and events and about what’s going on in Providence (you may find me posting there at some point), and a digest will go out on H-Public every day. 

Now a joke:  What do you call a large group of public historians?  

Whoever comes up with the best punchline will win a fabulous prize.   This offer is open only till Sunday morning.
