Public History – Public Humanities


Symposium 12 February 2010


 

The focus of this symposium was on initiatives and thematical approaches to Public History/Public Humanities both as a research field and as area of application. The single talks covered questions such as: Which contents of the humanities are processed in which media and genres? Which channels are used to reach and to create a broad audience? What are the differences and similarities between science and humanities - especially regarding the public understanding of science? Are there new areas of application? And which insights do we get of the relation between institutions and the public?
