CfP: Public History. Forms of Politics, Cultural Praxis and Scholarly Reasoning

You can now apply for the conference "Public History. Forms of Politics, Cultural Praxis and Scholarly Reasoning". The event, which is co-organised by Prof. Jan Rydel, member of the ENRS Steering Committee, will take place on 2-4 July 2020 in Cracow. Deadline for applications: 15 January 2020.

Frequently, spotlight is directed towards Eastern Europe and the new members of the EU, even though the uses of history and conflicts about the “how”, “why” and “by whom” play a crucial role for the whole of Europe and beyond. The conference not only aims at redrawing current lines of conflict, but instead at discussing the status and key aspects of the uses of history in Central and Eastern Europe, from the North Sea and the Baltic to the Adriatic and Black Sea, including further regions of Europe in comparative perspective.
