International Federation for Public History (IFPH) now welcomes applications for its 2024 World Conference that will take place on 3-7 September, 2024. The conference will be hosted by the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) at the University of Luxembourg, which is also the IFPH’s headquarters. Participants will enjoy a very international and multicultural environment in the heart of Western Europe.
International, Hybrid, and Green Event
Our aim for the conference is to be as inclusive and accessible as possible. In order to foster more international discussions, the IFPH and the C²DH have decided to offer hybrid opportunities for those presenting and attending the conference. Presenters can choose to present their papers on-site in Luxembourg or online through our video conferencing tool. Sessions will be facilitated to allow discussions between on-site and online presenters and attendants.
The field of public history is expanding rapidly. Similar to C²DH’s many activities, public history fosters accessibility, engagement, and participation for a wide range of people. The links between “history” and “publics” can take many forms including different audiences, contributors, spaces, projects, and uses of the past. In line with previous IFPH conferences, the 2024 event has an open call that invites proposals and discussions on history for, with, by, of, in, or among different publics. Some suggested themes are available on the C2DH Conference Page.
