Chair of Public History

The past, and references to it, are always present: in the monuments we walk by, the books we read and the landscapes we feel a part of. Here at the study group for Public History at the University of Vienna, we research, teach, and publish on two components of public history: how the past is or has been mobilized, by whom and to what end, and these past-related identity discourses themselves in their material, mediatized and functional manifestations.
