Event details

Exploring the Past Public Exhibition

The AHRC-funded Co-Design Project ran for four months in York in early 2014 and focused on how decisions about heritage are made, within the context of broader concerns about the nature of democracy. This seminar will present some of those activities for discussion.

The second of our ‘Sandwich Seminars’ for the Within the Walls project.

Within the Walls: Heritage, Public History and the Historic City explores the relationship between the community, their values and their heritage. We encourage the public to bring their lunch to the event, along with an appetite for discussions on the meaning of public history in York.

These events are part of ‘Being Human’, the UK's first national festival of the humanities, led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the British Academy.
