Protest, Memory, and Public History: a workshop at the University of the West of England, Bristol.

The aim of this workshop is to establish dialogue between academic historians, community history groups and heritage/museum professionals on the past, present and future of protest history in the public sphere.

Many new museums stress the democracy of interactive display and community curation, and strive to represent historical narratives from a wide range of perspectives. One result has been the tackling of such controversial and previously hidden issues as the Slave Trade, but how successfully have protest and radical political movements been represented, either now or in the past? And how should professional historians respond?

This is the second leg of the 'new approaches to the history of protest' workshop series, the first of which took place in July 2011 at the University of Hertfordshire.
