PHEHP 2023 : Public History in European Historical Perspectives


When Sep 14, 2023 - Sep 15, 2023
Where Luxembourg
Submission Deadline Apr 1, 2023

Call For Papers

Conference on 14-15 September 2023 at the University of Luxembourg, followed by a book publication.

According to international literature, public history emerged as a subfield of history in the United States in the 1970s. University programs, conferences, journals, grants, and networks of public history indeed flourished in North America in the last 50 years. However, some public historical practices have existed in Europe - without bearing the name of public history - long before the institutionalization of the field in the 1970s. It is this long history of public historical practices in Europe that this international conference aims to uncover.

Proposals covering a wide range of public historical practices from different time periods (including Antiquity, Middle-Ages, and pre-Modern times) are welcome. For more information, please follow the link.

In addition to panels with presentations, conference participants will take part in a collaborative workshop to prepare the publication of an edited volume on the history of public history in Europe with De Guryter. Selected papers from the conference will be invited to be part of the publication. For that reason, applicants need to submit an extended abstract.

Proposals should include the name(s) of the applicant, their affiliation, the title of their presentation and an extended abstract around 1500 words. Proposals for both (partial) panels and individual papers will be considered.

The deadline for all proposals is 1 April 2023, to be sent to

Organised by the Public History as New Citizen Science of the Past project, the conference will take place on 14-15 September 2023. It will be hosted by the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) at the University of Luxembourg. The conference and presentations will be in English. All presentations will take place on-site.

The results of the CFP will be announced by mid May 2023. There is no participation fee. Organisers will provide some travel and accommodation support for presenting participants (exact details of the funding will be announced in May).

Please send any questions or inquiries to the following email:
