Public history

Lund Summer School

19 June 2023 to 23 June 2023

EUROPAST Lund Summer School
First summer school to be organised in the EUROPAST training programme led by the C²DH.

The EUROPAST Summer schools are designed t offer theoretical and methodological training, while placing a strong emphasis on supporting the development of early-career researchers in their chosen fields, promoting research integrity, conduct, and communication.

The Lund Summer School aims to gather scholars with an interest in the evolution of European history in the 20th and 21st centuries and in debates on these processes beyond academia.

The program comprises two core elements: theory, which explores the influence of social and political change, the advantages and disadvantages of digitisation, citizen science and co-production, history's role in the public sphere, and shared authority, and practice which delves into the communication of history, exhibitions, websites, museums, and other initiatives related to public history.

The Summer School will run from 19 to 23 June 2023, with a timetable divided into three modules:

  • Hands-on workshops (Public History teaching, storytelling, oral history, museum education and guided tours)
  • Presentations grouped by thematic area
  • Conversations keynote presentations followed by a discussion

The Summer School will be held in hybrid mode. The hands-on workshops will be on-site only.
