The UH Center for Public History Lecture Series provides a unique opportunity for Houston professionals, community leaders, and others to consider historical, social and cultural perspectives directly related to the decisions they make. The Series brings to the University of Houston and the larger Houston community scholars, artists, and policymakers who shape our world and broaden our intellectual horizons. 

Although historians study the past, we are keenly aware of our present moment. We believe that history – and especially Houston's history – can offer us tools to help us make sense of the world we live in. 

Each of the major recorded CPH Lecture Series events of 2017 will be placed below for viewing. In addition, we have provided list of linked supplemental resources for each video, related to the content discussed in that specific lecture or panel.
