The Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C2DH) is a research centre of the highest academic excellence for the study, analysis and public dissemination of contemporary Luxembourgish and European history. It aims to perform as a key player in three interrelated fields of interest:

  • First, as a national platform for the critical discussion and academic study of questions related to the contemporary history of Luxembourg from a transnational perspective;
  • Second, as an international hub for reflection on the methodological and epistemological challenges of history in the digital age;
  • Third, as a local mediator in the promotion of multimodal and digital literacy in academic research and teaching at the University of Luxembourg.

The centre therefore has a particular focus on the use of digital methods and tools for historical research and serves as a catalyst for innovative and creative scholarship and new forms of public dissemination and societal engagement with history in Luxembourg. Three thematic research areas — the contemporary history of Luxembourg, European history and digital historiography — are explored from a transnational and interdisciplinary perspective.

The Centre for Public History at Queen’s University Belfast provides a lively hub for people engaged in researching, teaching, and practicing public history. We work with a wide range of partner organisations, such as National Museums NI, the Mellon Centre for Migration Studies, and Queen’s own QUOTE hub. Research associated with the Centre focuses on a wide range of national and global contexts, historical periods, and disciplines, while our location in Northern Ireland provides a unique environment in which to explore many key issues around public engagement with, and consumption of, the past. The Centre is particularly proud to host the Keith Jeffery Annual Public History Lecture, which provides a platform for a senior scholar to reflect on contemporary issues in public history. 

As part of our commitment to disseminating the latest research and educating keen public historians, we have created an MA in Public History to help train the next generation of public history professionals. The course offers a unique opportunity to study public representations of and engagement with the past in a region where the past continues to resonate.

En el Departamento de Historia buscamos estudiar fenómenos sociales a partir de variables como el tiempo y el espacio, entre otras. Pretendemos aproximarnos a la manera en que se desarrollan los procesos sociales en el tiempo, a la forma en que el pasado se relaciona con el presente y al modo en que distintas sociedades se han relacionado con su entorno espacial al igual que con su contexto cultural, económico, político y social. Adicionalmente, en el Departamento reflexionamos sobre el oficio del historiador y del geógrafo, sobre la relación entre estas disciplinas y las otras ciencias sociales, y sobre los debates teóricos, conceptuales y metodológicos de campos del conocimiento. Desde el Departamento de Historia, con sus cuatro programas académicos, y su planta profesoral altamente calificada, pretendemos formar profesionales e investigadores con una visión crítica del pasado y de la relación de las sociedades con su entorno espacial. Asimismo, buscamos hacer un aporte al análisis y a la comprensión de la realidad de Colombia y de América Latina.”

The MA in Public History at Carleton University, located in Canada’s capital city of Ottawa, was first offered in 2002 and it has quickly become one of the leading programs in the country. Our graduates have found employment in a wide variety of museums, archives, government departments, and cultural institutions or continued their academic studies at the Ph.D. level. Our exciting and innovative two-year program combines traditional academic strengths in historical theory, historiography, and primary research, with specialized courses on topics related to history in the public sphere (ranging from museums and archival theory to oral history, performance, digital history, history and public policy, and photography).  These courses routinely offer students the chance to work with a partner on a group project.  Through a paid summer internship students gain first-hand practical experience as a public historian and they complete their degree with an original research essay (40-60 pages) or project (script, screenplay, digital site, podcast, documentary film etc.).

Carleton also offers students the opportunity to take a Collaborative Masters in Digital Humanities and a Graduate Diploma in Curatorial Studies in conjunction with their MA in Public History. We are also developing a Concentration in Public History at the doctoral level.

Our program also benefits from the presence of the Carleton Centre for Public History, a university research centre that encourages an interdisciplinary dialogue on public history and cultural memory, building bridges between faculty, graduate students, alumni, and the wider community of public historians.

Our students take coursework in a campus setting near the shores of Lake Michigan, while they have also pursued internships both locally and farther afield at places such as the Milwaukee Public Museum, the Milwaukee County Historical Society, the Smithsonian Institution, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
