The International Federation for Public History – Fédération internationale pour l’histoire publique has issued the Call for Presentation for its 6th World Conference of Public History.

Other partners are the National Council on Public History, the world’s largest public history organization, the German Historical Association (VHD), the American Historical Association and the Centre for Contemporary History in Potsdam (ZZF).

There is no specific conference theme and no focus on a particular historical era. Proposals covering a wide range of public history are welcome, such as Public History practice and civic engagement, Museums and exhibiting the past, Oral history and community projects, Digital Public History and Participatory knowledge

While the submission of full sessions, of working group or workshop proposals is preferred, both “partial” panels and individual proposals will be considered. A separate call for poster proposals will be announced in early 2020.
