Abstract

This comment praises the articles by Hunt and Timmins for their perceptive comments on the "supply side" of history—the social history that television and teachers provide. It argues, however, that we need to devote equal attention to the demand side, to our audiences. One of the key and understudied questions about public history is not the message or the messenger but how diverse audiences receive the message.
