I'm looking forward to this Friday's Bmore Historic "unconference," a daylong, participant-led series of conversations about "public history, historic preservation, and community development."
I've proposed a session on neighborhood vibrancy, just as a way of getting people's thoughts about what that means and how to make it happen.
Other proposed sessions include "Instant Living History," "Place-Based Local History," "Mapping Place: Experiments in Digital and Spatial Humanities."
I have no idea what that last one means. But it sounds pretty wicked.
