The richness of Public History

As a member of an interdisciplinary research network, Judith Keilbach co-authored Schlüsselbegriffe der Public History. The textbook introduces theoretical concepts such as "authenticity," "experience," "memory," and "performativity," and shows how these concepts can be used as analytical categories to discuss re-enactments, films, and video games about the past, and other phenomena of public history. The book illustrates the richness and diversity of academic approaches to a field often dismissed as "applied history" in the German context.
