Public History (of Education) and Applied History Manifestos’ 2011-2023

Public History and its sub-field of public History of education are applied disciplines in and for the present. However, good practices and ethical methods are sometimes summarized when producing disciplinary manifestos. This essay will engage with different history manifestos and their importance in describing the hermeneutic of Public and Applied History in the 21st century and how these manifestos are connected to the Public History of Education

L’Histoire Publique comme histoire du temps présent

La conception du temps historique a été profondément débattue et repensée depuis la fin du XXe siècle surtout en raison de la chute du communisme soviétique et de ce que Francis Fukuyama écrivit sur la fin de l’histoire avec le triomphe des démocraties libérales et du capitalisme et l’avènement d’un présent perpétuel d’un ordre économique libéral. Dans le cadre de notre intervention nous ne prétendons pas résumer ce débat pluridisciplinaire sur le présentisme ravivé en France par François Hartog il y a une vingtaine d’années mais seulement commenter en quoi la Public History se positionne par rapport aux différentes temporalités du passé et aux mémoires collectives.

La rivista “Ricerche Storiche” e gli albori della public history in Italia

Da una decina d’anni ormai, «Ricerche Storiche» (d’ora in avanti RS) è diventata in Italia una delle riviste di storia più attenta agli sviluppi della Public History (d’ora in avanti PH). Quando questo interesse è nato e in quali circostanze? E, soprattutto, come rintracciare eventualmente forme ancora inconsapevoli di PH nei cinquant’anni di storia della rivista? La domanda non è banale e prima di cercare di rispondere in questo intervento, non ero affatto sicuro di trovare dei semi intellettuali e metodologici che avrebbero potuto fare pensare ad una filiazione naturale tra ieri ed oggi.
