The Fredric M. Miller Memorial Lecture on Public History
Reflecting on a 40-year career teaching and writing, Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia co-editor and Rutgers historian Howard Gillette will address the ways history can and should be employed as a central tool in renewing civil well-being and advancing social justice.
The annual Miller Lecture on public history honors Fredric M. Miller, whose curatorship of the Urban Archives at Temple University and dedication to the archives profession created resources of enduring value for scholars and the public, especially in Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Howard Gillette is Professor of History at Rutgers University in Camden and a founding director of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH). This year’s lecture marks his retirement from the faculty at Rutgers-Camden.
