Teaching Public History and Performance During the Pandemic

How do you teach performing public history when in-person classes are not permitted due to the pandemic? Carleton University History Professor David Dean’s graduate seminar, Narrativity and Performance in Public History has had to be online for at least the first half of the current Winter 2022 semester.
