The field/department of Public History serves as the centre’s communication interface with universities und institutions of applied historical research and education. This includes cooperation with universities in the region, especially the master programme in Public History at the Free University of Berlin. Furthermore, it also works with numerous museums, memorials and other promoters aiming to convey history to a wider audience. In addition, the field/department of Public History serves as a point of contact for questions addressing to history, memory and memorialisation, especially those related to the city of Potsdam and the federal States of Berlin and Brandenburg. Supporting the mediation of contemporary research results in public is a central objective. In this context, the field of Public History also conducts lecture series, panel discussions and workshops.
