Carleton Public History Networking Night

Location:Happy Goat Coffee Company

You’re invited to the Public History Partnership Network Annual Reception on April 3rd!

We are very pleased to invite you to our annual Public History Partnership Network (PHPN) Reception. PHPN connects Ottawa-area professionals, graduate students, and university faculty with an interest in public history. Besides nurturing a wide range of public history work both on- and off-campus, PHPN members include institutional partners who employ Carleton’s history undergraduate and graduate students in practicum and internship courses. The annual reception celebrates these relationships, provides a brief update on the goings-on with the M.A. in Public History Program and the Carleton Centre for Public History, and highlights recent student work in public history. Most of all, the reception is an opportunity for conversation with both old and new friends. With the generous support of Carleton’s Department of History and the Office of the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, we are pleased to be able to offer a range of refreshments and appetizers.

This year we’ll be holding our event off campus at Happy Goat Coffee Company in Little Italy. As well as informal socializing, this year we are setting up speed-networking stations to facilitate more focused networking opportunities. We will be staging two fifty-minute sessions during the evening with fifteen networking tables. Each table will hold five ten-minute networking conversations in each session. Once you are registered we will set out a timetable and you can sign up through Doodle.

We hope you can join us on April 3rd! Please RSVP by March 12th by reserving your tickets here. If you wish to bring a guest please reserve two (2) tickets. Limit one (1) guest per invitee. If you wish us to extend this invitation to colleagues who might also be interested in joining the PHPN, please contact David Dean ( and Kira Smith ( so we can make these arrangements.
