On Friday, 23 October 2015, Wright State grad Kyle Yoho will be coming back to WSU to talk about something near and dear to his heart: reenacting, living history, and education. Kyle will discuss “Planning Your Own Living History Event” at the Millett Hall Atrium, 23 October, 11:15 am – 12:15 pm. Kyle, who earned his MA in Public History here at Wright State in 2014, is currently Education Director at The Castle Historic House Museum in beautiful Marietta, Ohio. Kyle has been involved in Civil War reenacting for eleven years, and for the past decade he’s organized a Civil War living history event at his hometown of Woodsfield, Ohio — an event which, in 2014, garnered the Ohio Local History Alliance’s award for excellence in public programming. This talk should prove to be of great interest to anyone with an interest in reenacting, in military history, or in public history, especially our PH students who have a museum career in mind.
Attendance is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
Shameless plug, but it’s not for myself so it’s perfectly OK 🙂 : if you’re curious about what “living history” is, check out the blog for Dr. Lockhart’s HST4850/6850 “Living History” course: Living History at Wright State University.
Kyle’s talk is co-sponsored by War & Society, Wright State University, and by the Department of History, Wright State University.
