Wendy Wickwire is the guest editor of the spring issue of British Columbia History magazine. The University of Victoria professor emerita reflects on the role of public history. Also in this edition, Glen Mofford puts the “pub” in public history; Vern Giesbrecht interviews multisport athlete Ted Hunt; Mark Forsythe profiles the Museum of Cariboo Chilcotin and the BC Cowboy Hall of Fame; and we print the winning W. Kaye Lamb essay, “Vancouver’s Chinatown: Literary mappings of seclusion,” by Harry Deng. Plus we launch our revamped books and multimedia section, “Refracting History.” The digital edition will be available on Zinio on March 4, with print copies in the mail shortly afterward.
