Public History Weekly (PHW) is a multilingual, collaborative open peer review journal about all kinds of dealing with the past in the public on all continents. Our mission is to provide a platform for discussion and advancement of public history research and teaching. We want to build bridges between research and application, politics and academia, the school and the university.
PHW thrives on the diversity of the voices and interests of its authors. We accept contributions by acknowledged researchers or experts working on all aspects of public history. Every Thursday 8 clock CET we publish new multilingual contributions. Join the lively international debate in the comments on our website or in the social media.
