[en] 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.
