Chair of Public History

On the one hand, public history is a sub-discipline of historical studies,  both basic and applied, that is theoretically, empirically and pragmatically committed to studying historical and present contexts in which references to the past are put to use. On the other hand, public history refers to the object of this historical sub-discipline: past-related identity discourses in their materiality, mediation and functionality.
