Seeking applicants for SHA Class of 2012

The field of public history is experiencing rapid and major change, and a new generation of leaders will soon be stepping up to set the course for the future of America’s history organizations.

Do you want to:

  • Play a greater role in your institution and the field?
  • Improve yourself as a leader?
  • Help shape the future of public history?

For over 50 years, the Seminar for Historical Administration has provided an intensive residential professional development experience for history professionals.

Applications for the SHA Class of 2012 are due May 21.

We are seeking leaders at all levels – executive directors, curators, educators, archivists, historians, interpreters, marketing and development professionals, and others – who want to improve their knowledge and skills, who want to become better leaders in their own institutions, and who are ready to be part of the larger network of history leaders around the country.

At the Seminar for Historical Administration (SHA) you will have an opportunity to examine and discuss issues facing the practice of public history with some of the most experienced and knowledgeable leaders in the field.

What SHA Graduates are saying:

“In midcareer, it often seems a mystery how the leaders of the field got from where we are to where they are – how they developed their scope of knowledge about administration, purpose, and the issues of public history. SHA demystifies this process concentrating years’ worth of mentorship into a rich, intensive three weeks. Nowhere else will the midcareer professional find the breadth and strong grounding in leadership basics in such an efficient package.” – Michelle Moon, Class of 2007, Assistant Director of Education for Adult Programs, Peabody Essex Museum
