The Centre for Global Health Histories at the University of York is delighted to support this event, hosted by the Institute for the Public Understanding of the Past at the University of York.
The aim of the workshop is to explore and reflect on public understandings and uses of the past, and practices of public history, in a global, international and transnational perspective. We are defining "public history" and "public understandings of the past" quite broadly, to include anything that is to do with historians engaging with communities or public policy making or history-making outside academic circles, or with the public significance and uses of historical understanding more generally.
More information about the schedule, the speakers and other conference details is available through the IPUP website.
Location: Berrick Saul Building, University of York
Admission: £110 including conference dinner; £80 excluding conference dinner
