The international blog journal Public History Weekly (PHW) is freely accessible as an Open Access publication. PHW is a web-based platform for discussing history, particularly the ways in which it collectively perceived, manufactured, and disseminated. The contributing authors address a range of issues, including institutional problems in schools, the political arena, or in the media. Political history and historical politics are also frequent topics of discussion. The journal sheds a bright light on a multitude of Public History practices and on the teaching of history, making it transparent for a broad public, while also energetically taking part in current debates.
“We want to build bridges between research and practice, politics and academia, as well as schools and universities. Look forward to weekly contributions from our authors and let the journal become a place for lively exchange through your comments.” Marko Demantowsky, Founder and Managing Director of Public History Weekly
