International Federation for Public History
Launched in 2009 as a NCPH Task Force for an International Public History, in 2010 the Task Force became an internal commission of the International Committee for Historical Sciences (or CISH, Comité International des Sciences Historiques) with the generous support of the National Council on Public History. Between 2011 and 2012 the task force transformed in the International Federation for Public History-Fédération Internationale pour l’Histoire Publique. The IFPH is an organisation mandated to create international linkages between public historians and promote the development of a world wide network of Public History practitioners. The federation’s purpose is to encourage, promote, and coordinate, at an international level, contacts, teaching and research in public history.
