6th World Conference of the International Federation for Public History

The German capital, which has been called the “Rome of contemporary history”, is an ideal location for a major meeting of public historians from across the globe. Like few other cities in the world it offers many different layers of history, that not only still matter and are controversial locally or regionally, but nationally and even internationally.
The conference will be hosted at the Freie Universität Berlin, where the first German MA program in Public History was established.

Partners of the conference are the National Council on Public History, the world’s largest public history organization, the German Historical Association (VHD) and its working group on applied/ public history (AGPH), the American Historical Association, the International Council of Museums (ICOM) Germany, and the Leibniz Centre for Contemporary History in Potsdam (ZZF,

There is no specific conference theme and no focus on a particular historical era.
