The Institute of History of the University of Wrocław, Poland (IH UWr), Zajezdnia (Depot) History Centre, and the International Federation for Public History invite students, PhD candidates and practitioners to share their research in the framework of the fourth Public History Summer School to be held online, 31 May-4 June 2021.



If you are interested in how history functions in the public sphere, the summer school will give you an opportunity to broaden your interests and enrich your experience. The event will combine lectures, workshops and debates concerning methodology and specific case studies delivered by specialists from the IH UWr and invited guests from other universities, as well as presentations of individual and collaborative research projects.

We strongly encourage graduate and postgraduate students, professionals, as well as those without institutional affiliation but conducting interesting public history projects to submit their proposals in English. The proposals may include (but need not be limited to):

- Ethical aspects of doing history

- Historical narratives

- History & politics

- History & memory

- E-history

- Digital humanities

- Oral history

- Visual history

- Museums, exhibitions, archives
