Can public history strengthen social cohesion, resilience and democracy? The Institute of International Relations and Political Science (Vilnius University) has launched the three-year project "Facing the Past. Public History for a Stronger Europe" (Europast). In close collaboration with the Leibniz Centre for Contemporary History, the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology (Lund University), and the Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH, University of Luxembourg), scholars from Vilnius University will explore the theory and practice of engaging citizens in the co-production and communication of the past in a digital age.
Through a vibrant combination of training, networking, research and communication activities, the project will establish an interdisciplinary research network, which will contribute to the democratization of historical practices through inclusion, empowerment and engagement of citizens in critical debates about the past.
