Date de l'événement : mercredi 07 décembre 2022 09:00 - 17:30
Lieu : Online

Organised by the Public History as new Citizen Science of the Past (PHACS) project, the 2022 symposium focuses on groups and communities becoming active participants in the production of history in museums.

Different publics do not simply consume history in museums (as visitors or users) but may also contribute to preserving, producing, and exhibiting history. The symposium will explore questions such as what groups and communities can bring to the production of history in museums and their impact on historical narratives and on the institutions representing them. It will also delve into the limits and challenges of participatory practices and co-production processes in history museums.

What can public participants (not) do? What skills and knowledge are necessary? What are the examples of collaborative decision-making processes that allow contributions from the different publics and how do they affect the role and functioning of museums?

Join us and our international panellists to discover more and engage in this stimulating and relevant conversation!
