Panel S38. We Interpret Our Present and Try to Share Our Past: European Public History Experiences and Projects

European Union (EU) public historians are engaged with the difficult task of producing a new public history of the traditional history of Europe and of single European Nations when EU citizens—their audience—are today facing a global crisis of the European Union project but are also the direct protagonists of such a crisis. The session presenters think that public history and a public approach to the past would foster a better understanding of the importance of the history of the European construction in the post-World War II era. Being in the middle for a EU public historian means to be able to interpret the past of single European nations within the context of EU broader identity and to communicate it to the wider possible audience.
