The Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) at the University of Luxembourg is proud to organize the book launch of the Handbook of Digital Public History (De Gruyter, 2022). In presence of the three editors Serge Noiret (Italian Association of Public History), Mark Tebeau (Arizona State University), and Gerben Zaagsma (University of Luxembourg), we will discuss this fantastic new resource that helps better understand and practice digital public history.
