The 13th annual Massachusetts History Conference is exploring how to ignite a passion for history among our public. Public historians are responsible for igniting a passion for history and consciousness of the past, and fostering public dialogue. This year’s conference will also showcase the launch of the Mass History Alliance, a new endeavor to support and advocate for all public history organizations and their work in Massachusetts.
