Project description Ecole d’été « Participation & Démocratie » 16-20 Mai (Esch-Belval ; Esch-sur-Alzette; Dudelange) La plateforme de la démocratie participative/Université du Luxembourg a le grand plaisir d’accueillir la cinquième édition de l’école d’été internationale (International Summer School) “Participation et démocratie”. Dans le prolongement des précédentes éditions, l’école d’été vise à approfondir les réflexions sur le fonctionnement de nos démocraties représentatives et sur les différents processus démocratiques – plus ou moins innovants – visant à promouvoir une participation plus directe et délibérative des citoyens. S’adressant aux étudiant·e·s en sciences politiques et sociales, ainsi qu’aux praticien·ne·s souhaitant renforcer leurs compétences, l’École d’été offre une semaine de formation interactive et personnalisée avec des enseignant·e·s reconnu·e·s internationalement. Elle propose un encadrement adapté aux étudiant·e·s en fin de master et aux doctorant·e·s à différents stades de leur avancement. Elle propose aussi aux praticien·ne·s de mettre en dialogue leur pratiques avec les évolutions de la gouvernance et de la participation citoyenne. L’ambition est de confronter les participant·e·s aux pratiques de recherche de chercheurs·euses confirmé·e·s, tout en donnant une opportunité de présenter ses travaux et de recevoir les commentaires et recommandations de des intervenant·e·s invité·es, mais aussi des autres participant·e·s. Cette école d’été est le fruit d’une collaboration forte entre cinq universités francophones d’excellence : Sciences Po Bordeaux, l’Université Laval, l’Université libre de Bruxelles, l’Université de Lausanne et l’Université du Luxembourg. Cela en fait une école unique dans le champ des sciences sociales et de la science politique francophone notamment par sa capacité à comparer les approches, les cas nationaux et leurs transformations. La spécificité de cette école est d’être l’une des rares en Europe à faire du français la langue de travail principale, même si l’anglais est utilisé pour certaines interventions. La présente édition marque la première édition de l’école à Luxembourg après que celle-ci se soit tenue à deux reprises à Bordeaux en 2016 et 2021, à Laval en 2017, à Bruxelles en 2018 et à Lausanne en 2020. Cette édition sera aussi l’occasion d’ouvrir un regard sur les nombreuses expériences participatives du Luxembourg et de saluer la collaboration fructueuse entre quatre acteurs engagés dans la l’étude et la promotion de la démocratie à Luxembourg : la Plateforme Luxembourgeoise de la Démocratie Participative (PLDP), la Chaire de Recherche en Études Parlementaires, ETICC et la ville de Dudelange en tant que ville pilote dans la démocratie participative. L’école sera organisée autour des thématiques suivantes : Y-a-t-il une demande pour plus de participation à l’ère de la désinformation ? Etat des lieux des consultations citoyennes Participation des jeunes et budget participatif Participation citoyenne dans les tiers lieux : le cas de Esch2022 Capitale européenne de la culture Digitalisation des campagnes politiques et effets sur la participation [less ▲]

Book Description The second edition of Public History: A Textbook of Practice offers an updated guide to the many opportunities and challenges that public history practitioners can encounter in the field. Historians can play a dynamic and essential role in contributing to public understanding of the past, and those who work in historic preservation, in museums and archives, in government agencies, as consultants, as oral historians, or who manage crowdsourcing projects need very specific skills. This book links theory and practice and provides students and practitioners with the tools to do public history in a wide range of settings. This new edition reflects how much the field of public history has changed in the past few years, with public history now being more established and international. New chapters have therefore been added on the definition, history, and international scope of public history, as well as on specific practices and theories such as historical fictions, digital public history, and shared authority. Split into four sections, this textbook provides approaches, methodologies, and tools for historians and other public history practitioners to play a bigger role in public debates and public productions of historical interpretations: Part I focuses on the past, present, and future of public history. Part II explores public history sources, and offers an overview of the creation, collection, management, and preservation of materials (archives, material culture, oral history, or historical sites). Part III deals with the different ways in which public history practitioners can produce historical narratives through different media (including texts, fictions, audio-visual productions, exhibitions, and performances). Part IV discusses the opportunities and challenges that public history practitioners encounter when working with different collaborators. Whether in public history methods courses or as a resource for practicing public historians, this book lays the groundwork for making meaningful connections between historical sources and popular audiences.

Situated at the axis of societal issues and academic research, the renewed popularity of applied history has raised several questions about its practice. The most direct questions come from non-academic partners. What can one expect of applied historians? How will those expectat ions be met? What if the methods and tools of applied history fall short of their goal? And is it even that important that organizations learn to think about the past , when they are oriented towards the present and future? Other questions stem from academic concerns. Is applied history more than a reiteration of public history? Do societal questions and concerns have a place within academic history departments? And if so, what are the ethical boundaries of this type of research? Some of these topics remain open questions. Some have been eloquently answered. Some remain subject of (fierce) discussion. Therefore, this third Corvus applied history workshop joins academic and non-academic expertise in order to assess and debate the value of applied history practices in different sectors. Discussants: Thomas Cauvin, Associate Professor of Public History, Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) Gill Bennett OBE Senior Associate Fellow, Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) Historians Pieter Huistra Assistant Professor Theory of History, University of Utrecht Jason Steinhauer Global Fellow, The Wilson Center Koen Vandenweyer Delegation of Flanders to the European Union Alexandra Van den Berghe Corvus Research Project, KU Leuven Programme: 9.15am : Welcome 9.30am : New name, old practices? *(what is already out there)* 11am : Coffee break 11.30am : Where, when, how? *(what should be out there)* 1pm : Lunch break 2pm : What (not) to do? *(what should not be out there)* 3.30pm : Conclusions 3.45pm : End Starting questions: 9.30am : New name, old practices? *(what is already out there)* In these last few years t he notion of ‘Applied History’ has seen renewed popular ity. Proponents thereby often promise to reinvigorate the ‘long lost pr actice’ of using histor y in the present. Yet teachers, journalists, archivists, politicians, mar keteers and many others (including academics) have never stopped applying history in their professional activit ies. So do you think that there is already enough ‘applied history’ out there, particularly in your sector? 11.30am : Where, when, how? *(what should be out there)* The ‘next step’ in Applied History is usually considered to be the development of new ways of applying historical insight to issues in the present . This of course begs the question what those methods should be designed to do – what issues deserve attent ion and which new methods and tools look promising? In other words, what can or should applied history try to achieve as its ‘next step’? 2pm : What (not) to do? *(what should not be out there)* Not everybody believes that applying past insights to present concerns is a good idea. Some see no value in historical information, nor in historical thinking. Others fear the applicat ion of history in the present, as uses of the past become abuses of the past far too quickly. Therefor e, what do you think should be absolutely avoided when ‘doing ’ applied history? [less ▲]

n times of global crises, people turn to history to understand their own and their society’s situation. This is an issue addressed by those active in the field of public history. In this roundtable, teachers share their experiences with academic courses training students on both sides of the Atlantic in taking stock of public and applied history. First, students investigate how specific audiences have dealt with historic events, periods, or developments considered to be collective or cultural traumas. Secondly, students design a product or project targeted at a specific audience, online or offline, aiming to reconstruct, contextualize, and represent a specific topic. [less ▲]

Digital history goes, by definition, beyond national frontiers, but can one decipher national specificities in its practices and projects? This chapter explores the birth, development, and institutionalization of digital public history in the United States. Issued from a strong network of digital history practitioners, the success of digital public history in the United States stemmed from its connection with pre-existing public history academic centers and projects. Through projects like the Valley of the Shadow or, later, the 9/11 Digital Archives, digital historians re-imagined the concept of authority and relations with the public. The Center for History and New Media was created by Roy Rosenzweig in 1994 and rapidly became one of the main actors in the move from digital to digital public history. Finally, the chapter explores the future of digital public history in the United States, its institutionalization as a discipline, and its increased focus on user-generated projects. [less ▲]

lthough public history is becoming increasingly international, the field remains difficult to define and subject to some criticism. Based on sometimes long-established public practices, public history displays new approaches to audiences, collaboration and authority in history production. This article provides an overview of public history, its various definitions and historiography, and discusses some of the main criticisms of the field. Public history is compared to a tree of knowledge whose parts (roots, trunk, branches and leaves) represent the many collaborative and interconnected stages in the field. Defining public history as a systemic process (tree) demonstrates the need for collaboration between the different actors – may they be trained historians or not – and aim to focus on the role they play in the overall process. The future of international public history will involve balancing practice-based approaches with more theoretical discussions on the role of trained historians, audiences and different uses of the past.

The Fall of Monuments: a Public History Monuments have, for a few years now, been hitting the headlines all over the world. Public debates do not focus so much on the erection of new monuments as they do on acts of vandalism, removal, and destruction. If destructions of monuments are not new – for example during the French Revolution – their multiple examples all around the world (United States, England, Australia, Spain, Argentina, South Africa for instance) raise questions about their origins, meanings, and consequences. In my presentation, I propose to understand those synchronous destructions and removals through the angle of public history. Developed as a process to include publics into its production, interpretation, and communication, public history helps to better understand the issues at stake in destroying monuments. In the words of Ludmilla Jordanova, the past is more than ever considered as a public property subject to many different interpretations. Remembering and interpreting the past has become more democratic, more participatory, more diverse but has also shacked power relations. New participatory practices have impacted how we memorialize and interpret the past at official levels. Questions such as who owns the past and who can decide what historical events, actors can be remembered through monuments are being reconsidered. In this reinvention of our relations to monuments – and indirectly to the past – I propose to reconsider the role of historians. I argue that more than simply interpreting the past, historians can help communities deciding what to do with (unwanted) monuments [less ▲]

The future of historiography seems to belong to Public History Thomas Cauvin author of the path breaking book Public History A Textbook of Practice, even argues that we should all become public historians. In his book and as a public historian he explored fields as different as brewing and food history digital public history controversies over monuments public history as empowerment and the possibility of an international public history. Not only in these fields Public History seems to be on the rise Yet Public History also faces serious challenges such as the political fragmentation of societies and the idea of „alternative facts”. In his talk Thomas Cauvin will provide us with insights into the conceptual frame of Public History and use various examples to illustrate the practice of Public History. We will particularly discuss the role of Public History as a source of empowerment for underrepresented groups. This talk is part of the seminar History and Youtube organized by Anna Rosa Haumann and Florian Wagner at the University of Erfurt [less ▲]
