Historical Reminiscents

Feb 7, 2018

New podcast episode! Some of the core facets behind public history practice are accessibility and community access. And preserved heritage should be accessible to all. In this week's episode I talk about ableism in public history and heritage sites.  I discuss job descriptions that include lifting requirements, inaccessible heritage sites, and digital accessibility.

As a note, I do realize the irony of talking about accessibility on a podcast for which transcripts are not available. I'm currently thinking about transcription options for the audio.

Mentioned in this episode:
-Accessible Heritage Initiative
-MUSEUM NOTE: Accessibility (PDF)
