Facing the past. Public History for a stronger Europe (EUROPAST)
1 January 2023 to 31 December 2025
Public history helps to engage citizens in the co-production and communication of the past while maintaining ethical and methodological standards, strengthening social cohesion, resilience, and democracy in a digital age. The aim of EUROPAST is to enhance the scientific excellence and research capacity of Vilnius University (VU) and strengthen the profile of its staff in the field of public history. To accomplish this aim, the project will establish structured collaboration between scholars from VU and leading researchers on public history from the Leibniz Centre for Contemporary History in Potsdam, Germany (ZZF), the Centre for European Studies at Lund University in Sweden (LU), and the Centre for Contemporary and Digital History in Luxembourg (C²DH).
