Please join us on Tuesday, December 14, 2021 for the inaugural Julian Francis Abele “Out of the Shadows” Virtual Public History Symposium.

This event, which is being presented virtually on Zoom from 9 a.m. to 2:15 p.m., is named in honor of pioneering African American architect Julian Francis Abele, who contributed greatly to the design of Monmouth University’s Great Hall (previously known as both Shadow Lawn and Wilson Hall).

Our first annual keynote speaker will be Dreck Spurlock Wilson, author of Julian Abele, Architect and the Beaux Arts. A number of other presenters will then speak about their work, with plenty of time allocated for questions and answers.

Please feel free to come and go throughout the day as your schedule allows. The symposium will be a welcoming place for public history practitioners at all levels, established and emerging scholars, and graduate and undergraduate students to share their public history work on individuals or groups in history whose legacies have been purposefully or inadvertently suppressed, overshadowed, or underappreciated.

The symposium is open to the public with no cost for presenters and attendees alike.

Please use the available link for complete program information and online registration.
