Welcome to the CCPH

In January 2016 we received the good news that the Carleton Centre for Public History has been renewed as a Carleton University Research Centre for another five years. We will be developing new projects and new ways of interacting with the public history community within Carleton and beyond. We are currently working on applications to Digging into Data (Shawn Graham with David Dean and Shawn Anctil) and the City of Ottawa’s 2017 celebrations (David Dean) and are involved with Concordia Professor Ron Rudin’s Lost Stories Project application to SSHRC (James Opp and John Walsh). There is much more to come as the year progresses.

If you have any questions about the Centre, or how to become a part of the Centre’s network of users, please contact the CCPH RA, Rob Blades (pubhist@gmail.com) or one of the Co-Directors David Dean or James Opp.
