A Question of History: Public History in Illinois
Mar 30 – Jul 31 all-day

Eastern Illinois University’s Booth Library presents an exhibit, “A Question of History: Public History in Illinois,” through July 31. The public is invited to view this exhibit at any time during the library’s business hours.

The exhibit was produced by students in EIU’s Historical Administration graduate program. For more information about the exhibit and related programming visit the web page here.

On Oct. 1, 2015, the Illinois State Museum closed its doors for nine months amidst a statewide budget crisis. This closure brought the topic of public history in Illinois to the forefront of a national conversation about the relevance of history. In an effort to raise awareness about the importance of public history, EIU’s 2016-2017 Historical Administration class, with the support of Booth Library, presented “A Question of History: Public History in Illinois.”

Featuring items from institutions across the state, including the Illinois State Museum, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, and the Lincoln Home National Historic Site, this exhibit traces the role of public and historical institutions of Illinois to show how history was and continues to be vital to our cultural heritage and identity.

For more information about the exhibit or programming visit the exhibit web page, http://library.eiu.edu/exhibits/questionofhistory/.
