Welcome to the CCPH

The Carleton Centre for Public History has re-booted its website!  A new url address, a new framework, and new ways of interacting with the public history community within Carleton and outside of it.  Our goal is to make this space more dynamic, more interactive, and give those associated with the centre more opportunities for connecting with each other.  We are excited to offer forums for the first time, and hope that users will find them engaging and useful.

If you have any questions about our new site, or how to become a part of the Centre’s network of users, please contact the CCPH RA, Jesse Robertson (pubhist@gmail.com) or Co-Director James Opp.
