The aim of the conference/workshop is to explore and reflect on public understandings and uses of the past, and practices of public history, in a global, international and transnational perspective. We are defining "public history" and "public understandings of the past" quite broadly, to include anything that is to do with historians engaging with communities or public policy making or history-making outside academic circles, or with the public significance and uses of historical understanding more generally.
Keeping up with tradition, on September the IHC starts the school year by organising a Summer Course open to all the community!
This interdisciplinary one-day symposium will bring together academic researchers and representatives from the heritage sector, to consider the value of objects, places and spaces for understanding the social, cultural, economic and political landscape of the period 1350-1550.
