In this live, special episode of A New York Minute in History, Devin and Lauren visit the annual Association of Public Historians of New York State (APHNYS) conference in Kingston, New York. What is it like to work in history? We’ll discuss how today’s public historians are striving to expand the narrative, engage with their communities, and learn from one another. We’ll also get the details on the William G. Pomeroy Foundation’s latest marker programs, and take a stroll down memory lane with former co-host Don Wildman.
Guests: Don Wildman, host of the podcast American History Hit; Taylor Bruck, city of Kingston historian; Christine Ridarsky, city of Rochester historian, and board president of APHNYS; Susan Hughes, historian and archivist for the William G. Pomeroy Foundation; Matthew Urtz, Madison County historian
