Pokémon and Public History

I recently started reading the very interesting Streets of Salem blog, and this article about the Pokemon Go craze caught my eye. As a historian I’ve been fascinated by the stories I’ve heard (and the things I’ve seen with my own eyes) of people going to various historical sites, many for the first time, to catch Pokemon monsters on their phones. I admit the whole thing is a bit puzzling, but Streets of Salem has an interesting take on it. Great blog to follow, by the way!

  1. I haven’t quite understood the PokemanGo craze either, but that was an interesting read, thank you.
