Public History and Oral History.
Blatti, Jo
Journal of American History, v77 n2 p615-25 Sep 1990
Examines how oral history may help close the gap between professional and public history, thus broadening the framework of historical discourse. Considers public history projects--films, videos, museum, and historic site exhibits--and the work on conceptions of history by David Carr and Henry Glassie. Favors interpretive approaches that reflect multiple historical perspectives and contexts. (CH)
