Full details under https://aiph.hypotheses.org/8512 (and below). 'History is a common good'  The Italian Association of Public History (AIPH) announces the 4th National Public History Conference at the Museum M9 for the history of Italy in the 20th century in Mestre, from the 29th of May 2020 to the 2nd June 2020. The conference will be inaugurated at the Department of Humanities, Caâ Foscari University of Venice, on Friday 29th of May 2020. The 4th AIPH conference - during which the Plenary Assembly of the Association will also be held on Monday 1st of June 2020 - will continue the work begun in Ravenna in June 2017, in Pisa in June 2018 and in Santa Maria Capua Vetere in June 2019, in order to discuss Italian and international experiences and practices and the many challenges of Public History. In line with the Italian Public History Manifesto (https://aiph.hypotheses.org/8512), approved after our association's meeting in Pisa in June 2018, AIPH intends to contribute to the affirmation of a greater awareness of the value of historical knowledge, an essential resource for understanding the present, planning of the future and exercising full citizenship. The 4th AIPH National Conference of Venice-Mestre will create new opportunities for discussion and reflection between those who work with the past. The conference will examine ways in which history is present in society today, from universities to public places, in schools and learning institutions, in high and in popular culture and, finally, in the daily life of our communities. The invitation to participate aims at those who work in the public history sphere and with various professions aiming at the production of historical and educational content. Proposals are invited for many fields: - Exhibitions and museums of history and, more precisely, -- Memorials in exhibition environments and memorial museums, -- Public memories and national identity practices in museum exhibits, -- Design of exhibitions with a historical theme -- Museum storytelling -- Use of photography in history museums - Public history for the enhancement of the material and immaterial historical heritage - Oral history in public history projects - Gender History and Public History - Public History in schools and universities - Digital Humanities, Digital History, Digital public history - Games and Video Games of History - Civil rituals, celebrations, commemorations, sites of memory - Italy and the mafias: history, memories and communities in the context of organized crime - June 2: History and Memories of the Republic HOW TO APPLY Two types of original proposals (not already accepted for previous AIPH meetings) can be submitted: - Individual papers, which will be integrated into panels by the Scientific Committee for AIPH2020.
