*  *  *

Published on Friday, December 06, 2019 by Céline Guilleux

Summary

In line with the Italian Public History Manifesto, approved after our association’s meeting in Pisa in June 2018, AIPH intends to contribute to the affirmation of a greater awareness of the value of historical knowledge, an essential resource for understanding the present, planning of the future and exercising full citizenship. The 4th AIPH National Conference of Venice-Mestre will create new opportunities for discussion and reflection between those who work with the past. The conference will examine ways in which history is present in society today, from universities to public places, in schools and learning institutions, in high and in popular culture and, finally, in the daily life of our communities.

In line with the Italian Public History Manifesto, approved after our association’s meeting in Pisa in June 2018, AIPH intends to contribute to the affirmation of a greater awareness of the value of historical knowledge, an essential resource for understanding the present, planning of the future and exercising full citizenship.

The 4th AIPH National Conference of Venice-Mestre will create new opportunities for discussion and reflection between those who work with the past. The conference will examine ways in which history is present in society today, from universities to public places, in schools and learning institutions, in high and in popular culture and, finally, in the daily life of our communities. The invitation to participate aims at those who work in the public history sphere and with various professions aiming at the production of historical and educational content.

Proposals are invited for many fields:

  1. Exhibitions and museums of history and, more precisely,
  • Memorials in exhibition environments and memorial museums,
  • Public memories and national identity practices in museum exhibits,
  • Design of exhibitions with a historical theme
  • Museum storytelling

How to apply

Two types of original proposals (not already accepted for previous AIPH meetings) can be submitted:

  1. Individual papers, which will be integrated into panels by the Scientific Committee for AIPH2020. Each proposal must contain a summary in Italian and English (ca. 2000 characters each) and a short C.V. with address and email of the proponent.
  2. Panels with 3 or 4 participants with a coordinator among them (or in addition). Each proposal must contain an abstract (ca. 1500-2000 characters) in Italian and English, which describes the general theme of the panel and an abstract for each single paper in the panel in both languages (about 1500-2000 characters). A short C.V. of each panel participant and the address and email of the coordinator and of all panellists, must also be included. Same institution’s panels are not recommended. Comparison of experiences and diversified geographical and professional origins will constitute positive elements for the evaluation.

The first draft of the programme will be public by March 2, 2020.

On 10 January 2020, the following will also be published:
