Abstract

Every year since 2018, Wrocław’s Public History Summer School brings together undergraduate and graduate students from all over the world. They attend lectures, workshops, round tables and discussions, as well as present their own public history projects. The positive feedback that we received from them, as well as their suggestions in evaluation questionnaires encourage us to extend the school’s program and launch an international research seminar. As more and more doctoral students and academic historians conduct public history projects or include public history in their ongoing research, we believe that it may become an important platform for networking and exchange of information for scholars who are at the very beginning of their career.

Presentation

Every year since 2018, Wrocław’s Public History Summer School brings together undergraduate and graduate students from all over the world. They attend lectures, workshops, round tables and discussions, as well as present their own public history projects. The positive feedback that we received from them, as well as their suggestions in evaluation questionnaires encourage us to extend the school’s program and launch an international research seminar. As more and more doctoral students and academic historians conduct public history projects or include public history in their ongoing research, we believe that it may become an important platform for networking and exchange of information for scholars who are at the very beginning of their career.

Topic Proposals

The seminar has no specific theme. Proposals concerning all aspects of public history are welcome, as long as they relate to research - research process, results, theory, methodology, challenges, possibilities, ethical aspects, etc.
