Details

In Autumn 2017 the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics at Queen’s University Belfast is launching its new Centre for Public History. An interdisciplinary initiative, the Centre aims to provide a broad approach to the multi-faceted method of public history – in theory, application, and critique. This inaugural annual conference begins that task by seeking to assess the current state of the discipline. It asks a simple but vital question: in an age of ‘fake news’, ‘history wars’, and ‘impact agendas’, what role do scholars and practitioners have in shaping the relationship between the public and the place of the past?      

Reflective keynote lectures will be given by leading scholars in the field: Professor Ludmilla Jordanova (Durham University), Professor Peter Mandler (University of Cambridge), and Professor Jock Phillips (University of Auckland).
