The Historical Institute (HI UWr) constitutes a major centre for public history studies and offers a unique MA program taught in English.
If you are interested in how history functions in the public sphere, the summer school will give you an opportunity to broaden your interests and enrich your methodology. The event will combine lectures and debates concerning methodology and specific case studies by scholars from the HI UWr and invited guests from other universities, as well as presentations of students’ own research projects.
We strongly encourage graduate and postgraduate students from all universities in Poland and other countries to apply and deliver their papers in English.
The research projects may concern:
History & politics
History & memory
History of education
Popularization of history
History & media
During the summer school, you will have an opportunity to meet students of the UWr, visit the old city of Wrocław and Zajezdnia History Centre (a recently opened museum devoted to the post-war history of the city). Furthermore, you will be given more information regarding pursuing MA in Public History at the University of Wrocław.
The summer school is organised within the framework of the International Conference Studying Public History – Methods, Difficulties, Perspectives.The opening keynote lecture will be given by the President the International Federation for Public History Prof. Thomas Cauvin (Colorado State University)
